MINIATURE GLOBE; KLINGER, J.G.
The Earth. Nuremberg: J.G. Klinger, c.1860.
A 2 inch (5.7 cm) diameter miniature pocket globe in original 2¾ inch tall board box. 12 hand-colored engraved full gores, iron pivots at poles, fitting into notches in box, box covered in pebbled paper, lid with hand-colored engraved cover depicting 2 children and 1 adult around a table studying globes, cover titles "Die Erde. The Earth." Some light soiling a wear to varnish and box.

Klinger (1764-1806) was an engraver and art dealer in Nuremberg who published numerous globes in varying sizes. This globe shows Tasmania is an island, and an area in the south polar region labelled as Wilkes Land. Dekker points out that "Although the globe has Dekker's name on it, it must have been published after his death, since it shows Wilkes' Land, which was discovered in 1840-42" (Globes at Greenwich GLB0017).
