Sphere and stand
Terrestrial table globe. Geographical details on the sphere show marks and labels of the antipodes of Graz. The west coast of North America is labelled, and California is peninsula. 'Nova Guinea' is depicted as a small island. Joseph II was made King of the Romans in 1764, and this globe may have been made for the occasion by monks of a monastery. The mapping of the globe reflects the cartographical ideas of approximately 1750, when California was depicted as a peninsula.
