Sphere and stand
Celestial table globe. It forms a pair with the terrestrial globe Johnston, GLB0251. Astronomical details on the sphere include a labelled magnitude table above Bootes. The stars are marked by their Bayer notation, and the numbers under which they are listed in various star catalogues is explained below a cartouche. There is a comment on the variable star in Cetus. A total of 62 stars and nine star groups are named. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn; 16 of the southern constellations are drawn, as well as those of Plancius, Hevelius and Lacaille. However, not all the southern constellations are labelled.
