Terrestrial and celestial pocket globe. Geographical details on the terrestrial sphere are the same as those of the pocket globe, Herman Moll, GLB0197. The regions between the tropics are hatched and show the trade winds by arrows. There is a compass rose west of Australia, and a total of nine oceans are named.
On this globe there are certain amendements. For instance, California is drawn as a peninsula and the north-west coast of America is extended up to 'Beering's L.d', Australia and New Zealand are adapted according to Cook's discoveries and 'N. S Wales, Cooks Str' are added. The track of Dampier is removed but traces of it are still visible and 'Cook's Track 1760 (!)' is added. Of the ocean names on GLB0197, the 'EASTERN OCEAN' is removed and the 'ATLANTIC OCEAN' is written without the 'K' at the end. On the present globe, a 'North.n Ocean' is recorded whereas on GLB0197 this region is damaged.
