In the 16th-18th centuries, ocean pioneers were the celebrities of the age. Figures such as Drake, Magellan, and Cook discovered new lands, facilitated trade, and spread power and influence around the globe. Even today, their reputation and achievements are so embedded in our history, that they remain household names. So when we sat down to name our new ranges of globes, these were the obvious choice. The Exploration Globe Set consists of three globes, gift boxed, each with a different mapping style, and all three resting freely on individual metal rings. Each globe measures 4" in diameter.
