GEOGRAPHIA 'The Planet' 8 inch terrestrial globe, circa 1964

This is a very fine example of the popular table globe from the British company Geographia. It can be dated to circa 1964 Nyasaland has become Malawi and Northern Rhodesia has become Zambia (both 1964), but the Maldives are not yet independent and Southern Rhodesia is still shown (both until 1965).

The globe is constructed from a pasteboard sphere with hand-applied paper gores. There is minimal marking and the vibrant colours are complemented perfectly by the bright ivory bakelite base and chromed meridian.

The map has been carefully cleaned and the base and meridian polished. The globe is in excellent overall condition.

Diameter 8 inches (200mm); overall height 310mm
