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.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
