Atlas of the British Empire

A miniature atlas bound for Neale Albert of New York. The binding is goatskin and has been decorated with an onlaid map of the world, the British Empire in pink. The book has been enclosed in a globe made with silver hinge and catch which has again been inlaid and onlaid with a world map and tooled with the lines of longitude and the oceans currents. This has then been enclosed in a rosewood box again with hand made fittings. The turned interior of the box is tooled with the constellations on calf-skin.
