A good terrestrial globe signed “Globe terrestre dessé d’après les relations les plus récentes par Fx Delamarche Successr de Robert de Vaugondy. 1829” and with another cartouche “A Paris, Chez l’auteur Ingén. Mécan[ici]en pour les Globes et Sphère, rue du Jardinet, N°13. Quartier St André des arcs”.
The globe is generally in good and genuine condition. It measures 21 cm diameter and 47/48 cm height.
The turned wooden stand is original and without any wormhole. The zodiacal table is in excellent condition with only some normal spots, and the globe is also in good condition with its original colors.
The only flaw is some low scratchs in the map of Europe which erased the United-Kingdom (see pictures). The Arctic pole is also a little dirtier.
A good and a very genuine condition for this fine Delamarche’s globe.
