Note:
Collapsible globe with case. See Map Collector #33, p28-29, an article by van der Krogt on this very globe. This was a "Gratis - Premie" or a gift to accompany the book of journeys and discoveries by Jules Verne, adapted for Dutch readers by Dozy, and published by Elsevier. The wooden case has "De Elsevier Globe" printed on the sides and top. Not in Lanman's "Folding or Collapsible Terrestrial Globes." The title translates "The Elsevier Globe, adapted from the latest sources under supervision of Dr. G.J. Dozy. Presented free with the Book of Expeditions and Discoveries..." This form of globe was inspired by Betts' New Portable Globe (an umbrella type globe) published in London beginning in about 1860 and continuing into the twentieth century (van der Krogt). The similarity between this globe and the Betts globe of the same period is such that one might believe that Betts made this globe under contract with Elsevier (see Dekker and van der Krogt “Globes from the Western World" p127).
