Antique Globes

1

My first passion. English library globes are a must for the gentleman's library, all the great libraries and stately homes. Universities and industrialists of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries had these wonderful works of art. They come in a variety of sizes- 12, 15, 18, 21 inch and occasionally 24 inch. The great makers of globes in England have been, Cary, Newton’s , to name but a few.
