Nice engraving of a handsome set of table globes consisting of a celestial globe, armillary sphere and a terrestrial globe. Engraved by H. van Loon.

Professionally backed with light Japanese tissue. There is a small section of paper restoration in the left margin and into a small part of an unengraved section of the image. The work is very well done, with the leaf casting method, and is not at all distracting.
