This finely colored terrestrial globe is mounted on a turned wooden stand from which four arms protrude, holding up the horizon circle. Each arm gives the latitude and longitude from the Paris meridian for several cities. According to the information on the globe itself, it was published by the Maison Delamarche when it was under the management of Felix Delamarche.
