Description: Miniature globe in turned walnut case with domed lid. 1.5 inch diameter. 12 hand colored globe gores with original varnish and metal pins at each pole which enable the globe to spin in the case. Cartouche set in north Pacific. Stains along the equator in the Pacific.

Comments: This terrestrial globe is the smallest version made by Newton and Berry (Sumira p. 189). Wonderful detail included for such a small globe. The track of Captain Cook's final voyage of 1776 is shown when Captain Clarke and Gore sail to the Bering Sea after Cook is murdered. John Newton (1759-1844) is the founding member of this family firm. Miles Berry joined the firm in 1803. They also made planetaria, and mechanical models. An excellent example of a pocket globe.
