  • Miniature terrestrial globe or "pocket globe," made up of twelve gores engraved by Carl Bauer of Nuremberg. Continents are outlined in yellow, green, or red. The equator is outlined in pink, the ecliptic graduated in days of the houses of the Zodiac. Dotted lines trace the routes of Captain Cook's voyages of 1773, 1776, 1777. Names of continents, countries, oceans, seas, and other place names are in English, as these globes served an international market. Attached to the inside of the box is a paper strip folded accordion-style into 28 leaves that feature 28 small (56 x 45 mm each) hand-colored engravings of people of the world wearing native costumes, with captions in both English and German. Intended as a toy, the globe also had educational value for teaching children about geography and other peoples of the world
