Item Information

Title:
How to use a globe
Description:
Back to School: A number of instructional manuals on the use of globes were written in the 19th century. Manuals were written by educators to assist children using globes in the classroom, or by globe makers themselves, to explain the functions of their product. Globe maker Gilman Joslin published his instructional manual on the use of his terrestrial and celestial globes in the late 19th century. His concise work describes features of his globes, and why they are useful educational tools. Joslin’s desk globe was present in every elementary level Boston classroom in the late 19th century.
