In the next couple photos I'm showing the small globe in its protective box, the box itself is made from a repurposed World book encyclopedia, I love the new world book it's become!
Holbrook hinged globes were a wonderfully utilitarian learning tool. For that reason they survive today in generally poor condition. I am fortunate to have found a nice survivor, and Green Dragon Bindery did a superb job conserving it and fixing a few small issues. It will now carry on another 100 years as a piece of American history.
