Comprising varnished composite globe, approximately 4.2 cm's. in diameter, and folding panorama of 28 hand-coloured engraved sections, extending to 1.2 metres. The images are, as usual, peoples of the world, titled in German and English. The quality of the engraving is considerable higher and more elaborate than that usually found; the illustrations are larger and the hand-colouring of superior quality also. Panorama attached to the base of the box; the globe loose inside as issued. Both in the original card box with mounted pastedown to lid. A very handsome copy of a rare variant of a highly desirable educational toy. See Whitton, Paper Toys page 213 (Colour plate 40.) Or Bromer and Edison, Miniature Books, for another variant example.
