A good example of an 18 Inch terrestrial globe on an ornamental ebonized cast iron tripod stand with casters, with a cartouche that reads “18 Inch Terrestrial Globe, by W. & A.K. Johnston, Geographers, Engravers, and Printers, To the Queen, date (?), Edinburgh & London,” metal Meridian ring, paper on wood horizon ring showing the Gregorian and Zodiacal calendars. The globe is in good condition, with great overall patina, some surface gore edge losses, staining, and horizon ring paper discoloring and losses. Although the date is mostly missing from the cartouche, the globe dates to the mid to late 19th century. Dimensions: 45” h x 24” diameter, overall.
