By Cyrus Lancaster, Albany St. N.Y. S. Wood & Sons Agents N. York.
Note The second year of production of Wilson's Thirteen Inch Globe by Cyrus Lancaster. Compared to the last Wilson issue of 1834 (see our #4310) we cannot detect any changes in the geography. In fact, both the 1834 and the 1836 are out of date regarding the United States - Arkansas is shown in enlarged pre 1824 form and Northwestern Territory is shown where Michigan Territory should be. But then most of the early American globes did not keep current with the changes to political geography. With a four leg table stand. Total height from base to top is 18 inches.

Full Title Wilson's New American Thirteen Inch Terrestrial Globe, Exhibiting with the Greatest Possible Accuracy, The Positions of the Principal Known Places of the Earth, with the Tracks of Various Circumnavigators, Together with New Discoveries and Political Alterations Down to the present Period 1850. By Cyrus Lancaster, Albany, N.Y.
Note Wilson began making thirteen inch globes in 1821 (see Yonge p.69) and in 1835 Cyrus Lancaster (having assumed leadership of the firm after the death of Wilson's two sons in 1833) brought out a new edition of the thirteen inch globe with the American eagle in the cartouche (Dekker/van der Krogt p. 132). This 1850 edition of the terrestrial globe is not recorded in any of the listings - only an 1850 celestial globe is listed by Kimball. Therefore it is the latest known example of Wilson's terrestrial globe. The plates are clearly tired, the image of the cartouche is weak and some of the mountain ranges are barely visible. But there is much new engraving in North America, showing the new divisions in the west - California, Oregon, Utah, New Mexico, and the new cities - Mormon City, Sacramento, Stockton, Albuquerque, etc. It has been suggested that this is the first showing of Mormon City on a globe. With a four legged table stand and horizon ring, total height from base to top is 18 inches.

Authors Wilson, James
Full Title A three inch Terrestrial Globe by Wilson's & Co. Alby. (with) A Celestial Globe, With all the Stars of the 1st. 2d. & 3d. Magnitudes. By Wilson & Son's Alby.
Note The date of the globes is an estimate. Paired with a three inch celestial globe. On a turned wooden stand with four black ball feet, full height from base to top, 5 inches. Warner says that Wilson changed the business name from Wilson & Co. to Wilson & Sons in 1822. The celestial globe this is paired with is by Wilson & Sons, so I assume 1822 as the only year globes were made with both business names. The globe is very well engraved, showing much detail in the continents for its small size. Longitude is given from both Washington and London. Kimball notes that David Wilson, James' son, did the engraving for a new edition of the three inch globes in the early 1820's, which I assume are these globes. David later had brief success as a miniature painter, utilizing the same delicate engraving skills which he applied to these extremely well engraved globes. The three inch globe was also sold in pocket form with the celestial sphere on the inside of the case and on a stand with horizon ring and brass meridian. On this turned wooden stand version, the globe is mounted horizontally, an unusual presentation. Wilson made the first globes in the United States, with 1810 his first year of production and 1850 (by Cyrus Lancaster) his last.

Note The last year this globe was produced by Wilson & Sons. Both of Wilson's sons died in 1833, and this event necessitated a change in the company's management. In 1835 Cyrus Lancaster took over the business and signed his name to all the globes produced after that date. Four legged desk stand. Height from base to top is 18 inches.

Note An uncommon 12-inch globe with crudely printed gores, colored politically, although the key indicates that it was sometimes colored to show the heights of land and depth of oceans (Warner: "In 1896 Cheney obtained a copyright on a 12-inch terrestrial globe, the colors indicating the height of land and depth of water."). Cheney published a "Globe Manual for Schools" in 1882, with later editions to 1897. The Cheney Globe Company was in business from 1888 to about 1900. This globe is a desk model with a three leg iron stand and horizon ring, total height 20 inches.

Note Townsend's second collapsible globe with an internal mechanism for holding it open. The first collapsible Townsend globe was held open by an external stand - apparently no examples exist. Townsend was a school teacher in Vermont and later in California. His interest in globes was to produce a cheap globe that could be owned and used by students instead of a flat "map which, without explanation, is a false illustration, and can be understood only by a process of reasoning entirely beyond the mind of the child" (from Townsend's "Folding Globe Lessons"). This copy is presumed to be the second issue of this globe - an earlier issue has a somewhat different folder with only Townsend listed as publisher. However, it is not certain that both examples were not produced simultaneously in different cities. Both Globes are dated the same. Originally from the Welsh Collection. With a photocopy of Townsend's Folding-Globe Lessons, and an original advertising flyer for the globe.

Full Title Improved Globe, Boston. Manufactured by Gilman Joslin, Corrected to 1870. Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1852 by Charles Copley ... New York. (Terrestrial Globe).
Note 16" pair of Terrestrial and Celestial globes. These globes were originally issued by Copley and sold by Blunt in New York in 1852. Joslin revised and reissued them (this pair) in 1869, continuing until the 1890's (Warner). These are both floor stand models and are illustrated in Joslin's catalogue of the early 1870's (see our copy). Franklin Globes also issued the Copley Globes, but they may have been made by Joslin or Nims for Franklin (Warner). "National Park" is shown in the U.S. where Yellowstone Park was created in 1872, but we think this is anticipatory rather than after the fact. The "corrected to 1870" was usually done a year or two before the date (Coffeen). The Copley globes are beautifully executed, have a "modern" look, and are "extremely detailed, even to the point of obscurity" (Warner). Warner further states that "no examples of the Joslin 1869 state of these globes are known." This pair may be the only survivors. Copley won a gold medal in 1852 from the American Institute for the globes (see Transactions of the American Institute 1852, p124-5). Warner lists a Franklin 16" Terrestrial (3-88) by Nims that is similar to this. Total height from base to top is 43 inches.

Note This is Joslin's six inch globe on a special mount which demonstrates the relative motions of the earth and sun. In 1853 this device won a bronze medal at the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Association fair which stated that it was "very simple in construction, and highly useful for illustrating Geography and Astronomy in schools." This copy lacks the metal ring around the globe which is illustrated in Joslin's catalog - it is possible that it was issued without it in some copies. Most of the horizon ring calendar is worn off. Height from base of stand to top of globe is 9 inches.

Note Rand McNally issued their first globe in 1887 (Warner). Soon afterwards they were producing globe gores for other makers, in this example the American Globe & School Supply Co. of Seneca Falls, New York. Warner lists only one known example by American Globe, an 8 inch, 1891 globe also with Rand McNally gores. Their output must have been small and this 6 inch globe may be scarce. Total height from base to tip of the globe is ten inches.

Note Rand McNally's first globe was a 12" terrestrial produced in 1887 (Warner). This 18" floor globe appeared seven years later and is an impressive production. The graphic elements are very clearly rendered, in the best fashion of wax engraving. A horizon ring is still employed, with a metal stand that is unique and unusual, apparently of the "Aesthetic Revival" school of design that flourished at the end of the 19th century. Isothermal lines are shown for January and July, as are submarine telegraph cables. The gores show a water mark "& Sons" with a "96" below, so this globe had been issued in 1896. The political geography is pre 1898 and the Spanish American War (see Cuba, etc.). Total height from base to top of globe is 48 inches.

Full Title De Elsevier - Globe Naar De Nieuwste Bronner Bewerkt Onder Toezight Van Dr. G. J. Dozy, Gratis - Premie Het Boek Der Reizen En Ontdekkingen Rotterdam. Uitgevers - Maatschappij "Elsevier."
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).
