A set of 8 inch globes by Geographia of Fleet Street, London. Each with a brass semi-meridian on a circular brown wooden base; circa 1920.

The terrestrial globe is printed in several colours and comprises of twelve coated lithographic paper gores over an eight inch card sphere. The age of the globe has been identified by the political borders and named cities displayed. The globe is nicely detailed and has a grid network of parallels and meridians. It shows all the continents and countries as they were at the time it was printed and also indicates all the principal steamship routes with distances in nautical miles. A cartouche is present that includes the title and maker's address.

The celestial globe shows the constellations and many named stars. A cartouche is present that includes the title and maker's address.
When looking at the stars from Earth the viewpoint is effectively inside a celestial sphere. The surface of a celestial globe shows the star field as a projection viewed from the outside and is therefore reversed, with the constellations appearing as their mirror images.
