Lot Details
FLAMMARION, CAMILLE, AND EUGENE ANTONIADI.
Globe géographique de la planète Mars d'après CAMILLE FLAMMARION par E. Antoniadi. Paris: E. Bertaux, [c.1897].
Diameter 6 inches (1530 mm). 12 lithographed gores and 2 polar calottes laid on a hollow plaster sphere, the equatorial and meridian graduated in degrees labelled in 10° intervals with no subdivisions, the cartography shaded with gray stippling and showing place names, some with dates.

Flammarion's 6-inch globe was published in Brussels in 1892 by Louis Niesten, in the present edition in around 1897, and again in 1903 in Berlin by H. Albrecht. Bertaux was a prolific manufacturer of globes. Eugène Michael Antoniadi [1870-1944] was born in Turkey, but spent most of his life in France, initially assisting Flammarion. He became an authority on Mars and the canal phenomemon, and published in 1930 his magnum opus, entitled La planète Mars (a signed and inscribed copy of which appears in the Ritchey archive, lot 15).
