The National Geographic Adams Desktop Globe brings the society's legendary cartography to your home, library, office or school. The tabletop world globe is 12 inches in diameter and stands 16 inches tall atop the walnut finish solid hardwood base. An antique plated die case half-meridian holds the sphere at a 23.5 degree angle, mimicking the earth's own tilt. Latitudinal degree calibrations adorn the meridian and a clear plastic dial at the north pole of the sphere allow the viewer to ascertain time zone information.

An antique ocean style political map showcases National Geographic's famous cartography. The abundance of place names, distinctive typefaces and array of geographic elements are all deftly organized on this desktop world globe. The modern geography is rendered in a tastefully nostalgic style, with a beige ocean hue and a soft patchwork of colors from the continents. Run your hand along the sphere to feel the mountain ranges emerge three dimensionally on its surface with the raised relief.

The world globe looks great non-illuminated but even better when lit. The model has a wall cord and light switch that when activated brings out the warm colors of the antique styled political map. Attractive shades emerge and fill the space when the world globe is activated. The National Geographic Adams Desktop Globe - 12 Inch looks great on any tabletop surface. Whether as a gift to a friend, loved one or yourself, the handsome National Geographic cartography will impress for years to come.
