Full title

"Satelit" Globus. Vydal Felkl a Syn, Roztoky u Prahy
Published by 

This miniature desktop globe by famous Czechoslovakian Felkl & Son was one of the smallest globes made by this prolific globe maker. The 7 cm diameter globe was not the smallest, but smaller versions are today so rare that only a couple of pieces are known to exist worldwide. The globe provides an overview of the world map of the early 20th century in a convenient pocket size. Felkl might have named this globe 'Satelite' possibly to be also used in planetaria.

The globe provides a simple map without any relief and continents distinguished by coloured borders. Due to its lack of political boundaries, Felkl didn't have to update the map that often and almost identical versions of this globe were published from late 19th century to at least 1942. From the use of Leningrad instead we can be sure it was made after 1924.

Condition

Well preserved and clean map with beautiful patina, some very minor signs of age that can be expected.
