Terrestrial table globe. Geographical details on the sphere show compass roses, but no loxodromes are drawn. California is a peninsular. In North America there are labels for 'FRETNUM DAVIS' and 'Nieu Nederland'. In Asia the Great Wall of China is drawn. Around the South Pole there is a label for a hypothetical southern continent. There are decorative scenes, ships and monsters in the oceans.
There are nine notes on discoveries, for example, in North America within a decorative cartouche; in South America, around Cape Horn; and in the hypothetical southern continent inside a cartouche with a globe depicted on top of it and two navigators at the sides, one with a cross-staff and the other with a quadrant. A total of 11 oceans are named. Most of the texts on discoveries are copied from Blaeu's 680 mm terrestrial globe, GLB0104. The paper horizon ring for this globe is a later replacement.
