A fine pair of attractive traditional library globes on distinctive English-style “Georgian” mahogany stands made by Malby and Son and sold by James Wyld II. James Wyld and his son, James II, were among the leading English map and globe makers of the mid-19th century, taking over as the principal map and globe maker from the Cary brothers and Newton. James II took over the Malby and Son stock in 1860, hence these Thomas Malby and Son labeled globes with the Parker St. address sold on Malby stock stands and dated after 1860.
