MALBY'S Celestial Globe Shewing the Principal STARS of each Constellation. HOUGHTON ST. LONDON March 1st 1844.
The Malby family of map and globe makers was started by Thomas Malby, Sr. about 1839 and continued producing globes until at least 1860. The firm operated as Malby & Son with Thomas Malby, Jr. and globes produced by the company generally were engraved by C. Malby -- presumably a family member -- and later continued by Thomas Malby III.
Malby produced a variety of table globes in many sizes as well as this interesting pocket globe. The depiction of the lines of magnetic variation on a globe was a Malby innovation. The Malby firm associated itself with the geographical publishing of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK).
The terrestrial globe has several areas off missing area, and paper label, who are carefully replaced with facsimile or redrawn in brown ink. Nevertheless a rare set of globes which make a great presentation.
