Description: Loring's 9.5inch Terrestrial Globe, 1859, with twelve colored gores and two polar colottes, showing northern and southern limits of wood, grain, vines, and bananas, New Zealand also identified in Maori, the North Pole with printed hour circle, in engraved brass meridian circle with pointer for hours, the walnut stand with colored horizon ring graduated with months and houses of the Zodiac, on four baluster turned legs with turned cross stretchers, (cracks), ht. 14.5in.; and a Tanner's Pocket Map of New York, 1844 Note: Following Loring's death in 1840, his successor Gilman Josling, also a Boston bookseller sold these globes under his name, although, in this case, Josling's name does not appear. This suggests that Josling did not begin marketing them as his own until the 1860 edition, which was revised by George Boynton.
