A Map and Globe Collector's Cabinet

6 3/8" x 3 1/2 x 2 1/2"

An elaborate and fully stocked mahogany cabinet for a map and globe collector. The cabinet has three labeled drawers (terrestrial, celestial, and imaginary) filled with miniature maps, and eight cubbyholes containing maps too long to fit flat in the drawers. A shallow shelf holds a portfolio of prints from the Atlas spheroidal & universel de geographie dresse par F.A. Garnier, geographe. Vve. Jules Renouard, , 1860.

The shelf above the map collection holds seven globes from various historical periods: celestial, terrestrial, and lunar. Some are on stands and some are loose, and one is in a glass cloche.
