Sphere and stand
Terrestrial table globe. It forms a pair with the celestial globe, Senex GLB0139. Geographical details on the sphere include loxodromes drawn for 32 compass points. The monsoons are indicated and trade winds are depicted by arrows between the parallels. Around the North Pole is the label, 'TERRA ARCTICA INCOGNITA'. California is drawn as a peninsula and a hypothetical Antarctic continent is absent. There are 22 notes on discoveries, for example South Africa, below the Cape of Good Hope, North of Australia and in South America, below Cape Horn.
