Notes

Terrestrial inflatable globe. Geographical details on the gores show the locations of the 'Antipodes of Greenwich', and 'Paris' and 'Munchen' are marked. There are two notes on the passage to India. Notes on discoveries include, for example, those in the north polar region, close to Greenland, in Africa and for Tasmania. In the oceans, there are a number of islands with text. A number of other explorers are labelled, for example Magellan 1521, Bermuda 1522 and Cano 1526. There are the tracks of the voyages of 11 explorers, including, for example, Cook 1768, 1771, 1772, 1778, Clerk 1779 and Gore 1780. The place of the mutiny of the Bounty in 1788 is indicated. A total of eight oceans are named.

Accompanying material has been reported from some sources consisting of a pamphlet with instructions on the use of the globe: one was issued by Cella in Munich in 1831; another was issued by J.L. Grimm in Berlin in 1832; and a third was issued by Anton Klein in Munich in 1835. It is not known whether this was the same pamphlet reissued or separate publications.
