[BAUER, CARL JOHANN SIGMUND. 1780-1857.]
Die Erde im Kleinen. [c.1800-1825.] Terrestrial miniature globe, made up of twelve engraved gores, the equatorial graduated in degrees, 1 ¾ inches in diameter. Together with a folding hand-colored engraved sheet depicting the world's inhabitants in 28 panels with captions in German and English, the strip 1230 mm long, 55 mm high, attached internally to the marbled paper covered box, with hand-colored engraved pictorial label to lid, titled "Die Erde und Ihre Bewohner M.C.B." The globe lightly soiled, the box rubbed.

An unusual teaching globe. "The name Vancovens In. is written at the northwest coast of America, indicating Vancouver's discoveries (end of the 18th century). The 19th century explorations of the polar regions are not recorded, so that the globe can be dated between ca. 1800 and ca. 1825" (Peter van der Krogt, Old Globes in the Netherlands, 1984).
