Sphere and meridian ring
Terrestrial miniature globe. Geographical details on the sphere are the same as those of Dudley Adams, GLB0051, but with the addition of 'Ice Sea 1772' in the north polar region and 'English Colonies' in North America. The location of the 'Antipodes to London' are marked and the monsoons in the Indian Sea are recorded. The 'Chinese Wall' is depicted, California is drawn as a peninsula, Australia and New Zealand are drawn according to the Dutch discoveries, and the track of Anson is recorded and labelled.
