I am a freak for vintage globes! The memory of getting one from Santa Claus is very vivid in my head. I would look up locales all the time, and sometimes spin that baby until I thought it would start sparking and lift off. I still have that globe...it is a principle piece of my globe collection.
But, I will have to say this globe definitely caught my eye. The wood base built to support the globe had a storage sleeve for a paper copy of a World Atlas. It was beautiful! I so wanted it, but this little jewel had quite a hefty price. The book was published in 1957.
There are times you mull on something so long, you talk yourself out of it. I feel I did this regarding the globe. I so wish I would have purchased it. A globe with combo atlas....what more do you want in geographical information?
