Back to School: A variety of globes were available for personal, educational, and institutional use in the 19th century. Displayed here are reproduced pages of a sales catalog from New York distributor Baker, Pratt & Co., who specialized in school merchandise. The company offered every size model, from handheld pocket globes to desk-size globes and large globes on elaborately carved stands. As illustrated by photographs in this exhibition, Boston classrooms featured desk-top globes, as well as pedestal style models.
