Note: 
This three inch solid wood, paper covered globe is hinged to open and reveal the western and eastern hemispheres on a flat globular projection on the two inside surfaces. It was used as a teaching device to show students how a globe can be represented on a flat surface. The date is estimated by Warner, based on Holbrook's move to Wethersfield, Connecticut in 1854 to use convict labor to manufacture his globes (including this one). Full color.
