A miniature terrestrial globe in original cylindrical case, with hand-coloring to the 12 lithographic gores on the globe and a scene of a woman and two children on lid of case. With metallic axis pins. Lid has printed title "Die Erde/The Earth." Published by Johann Georg Klinger (German, 1764-1806) in Nuremberg in the mid-19th century, with lithographs by C. Dunzinger. Numbered 1031 on label of C. Abel-Klinger, Nuremberg, affixed to base of case. Circumference: 7 1/4". Case height: 2 7/8". Case diameter: 2 13/16". Note: The globe includes Wilkes Land, Antarctica, dating its publication to after 1840-42. The J.G. Klinger name was in use until 1852, at which point the firm began operating as C. Abel-Klinger (Source: Elly Dekker, GLOBES AT GREENWICH).


Globe is in very good condition, with negligible, scattered scrapes and losses. Minor wear to lid and to pebbled paper sides of case is commensurate with age and use.
