Cartouche with key to stars

Celestial table globe. Astronomical details on the globe include constellations that are depicted by mythical beasts, figures and scientific instruments with names in Latin. There are stars to nine orders of magnitude with nebulae and a note beneath the cartouche providing a key to their labelling by Greek characters. The astronomers' initials are underlined. The globe is made of two sets of 12 hand-coloured, engraved gores that are laid to the ecliptic poles. The axis runs through the celestial poles, the equatorial is graduated in degrees, hours and minutes. The colures are graduated in degrees and the ecliptic is graduated in days of the houses of the zodiac. There is a stamped brass meridian circle and hour dial. The horizon ring is papered, graduated in degrees of amplitude and azimuth and shows compass directions, days of the month and houses of the zodiac. There are four mahogany quadrant supports to a baluster-turned central pillar with three inswept legs. The sphere bears an inscription in in English.
