Sphere and stand
Celestial floor globe. It forms a pair with the terrestrial globe, Blaeu GLB0104. Astronomical details on the sphere include a magnitude table close to the North Pole. The Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds are labelled. Close to the North Pole, there are two tables in a cartouche, one explaining the astrological symbols marked on the sphere and the other explaining the precession with a table based on a constant precession rate.
