1880 Lebegue French Terrestrial Globe Antique With Moon Armillary

" 1880 Lebegue French Terrestrial Globe Antique With Moon Armillary"

French terrestrial globe with a moon 9 inches diameter with wood base
From the geography I believe this globe is from 1880 , It shows Romania , no Serbia( 1878) , Congo is not yet name free state of Congo ( 1877) and is mostly unexplored ( see picture) , no Austro-Hungarian Empire only Autriche ( Austria). The surface condition has some crack , scratches, browning . Overall most of the countries are easy to read and to discern. The printing is really nice and well done , this type of globe belong to the tradition of globe making of the 19th century : 12 full gores on a solid ball of plaster .The moon is unusual , I have seen this type of mounting with German globes made by Schotte or Felk from Prague .The moon is a wood ball with some of the paint missing. The mechanism and screw is in working condition.I believe it isa good value in term of historical content and decorative cachet .
Size: globe D. 9 inches , H.16x W.14 in ,antique condition , some oxidation and crack , most of the map readable with fresh coloring .
