This globe shows the Poles, the Tropics, the Ecliptic, the Equator and the Meridian, together with lines of longitude marked with hours, and certain altitude circles between the Tropics. Altitudes can be measured on the globe by means of a moveable arc graduated from 0° to 90°, and degrees of longitude can be measured by means of the silvered scale on the stand.
