Sphere and case
Terrestrial hand globe. Geographical details on the sphere are the same as those of Fortin GLB0244, and this globe forms a pair with the armillary sphere, Fortin AST0637. Australia and New Zealand are drawn according to the Dutch discoveries. A dotted line marks a hypothetical north east, east and south coast of Australia. There are no tracks but the lands seen by Quiros and Davis are marked. A total of three oceans are named. For full details about the cartography and construction of this globe please refer to the related publication.
