Click image to zoom old map image

Title : Collapsible, umbrella globe..
Map maker : ELSEVIER.
Date : Rotterdam, 1881.
Size : 29.5 x 15.0 inches. / 75.0 x 38.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Naar de nieuwste bronnen bewerkt onder toezicht van G.J. Dozy. Gratis-premie op het boek der reizen en ontdekkingen. Rott., Elsevier, (1881).

Collapsible, umbrella type globe, printed in colour on waxed fabric.
This was a "Gratis - Premie" or a gift to accompany the book of journeys and discoveries by Jules Verne, adapted for Dutch readers by Dozy, and published by Elsevier. The wooden case has "De Elsevier Globe" printed on the sides and top. Not in Lanman's "Folding or Collapsible Terrestrial Globes." This form of globe was inspired by Betts' New Portable Globe (an umbrella type globe) published in London beginning in about 1860 and continuing into the twentieth century. The similarity between this globe and the Betts globe of the same period is such that one might believe that Betts made this globe under contract with Elsevier (see Dekker and van der Krogt “Globes from the Western World" p. 127).
