Classic globes without a matching compass were considered incomplete. This wonderfully constructed bronze and wood stand with globe includes 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, historical.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Olympia, WA United States  
I thought the experience was a very good one.  I was first interested in the 4" gemstone globes, but later switched to the larger globe with the compass.  It was a gift to dear friends who already have many things.  I thought it was unusual.  I will get the paper weight at another time.  I wish the imaging had been a bit sharper when enlarged, but that could be my eyes.  I will shop here again.
