Terrestrial Globe with Compass

Classic globes without a matching compass were considered incomplete. Our wonderfully constructed Terrestrial Globe with Compass features a bronze and wood stand with paper globe with a true reproduction of 17th C. “dry” compass.

Twelve paper gores applied to the globe are printed after originals drawn by Gerardus Mercator, the inventor of the Mercator projection, which was used from the 16th C. until the middle of the 20th C. Scientific, decorative and historical.
