A new, accurate, and compleat Terrestrial Globe … laid down by the late Mr. James Ferguson … improv’d by G. Wright, and made by W. Bardin, etc.
London: Harrison & Co., 1783. 1 globe: hand coloured, 23 cm. in diameter. This globe forms a pair with the celestial globe at Maps G.8.a.
The globes made by Gabriel Wright (active 1782–1803) and his collaborator William Bardin (active 1775–98) marked a new phase in English globe-making that continued well into the nineteenth century.
This model was created for a 2020 British Library project to digitise globes from its historic map collection.
