Hiram Bingham III was a 20th century explorer famous for rediscovering Machu Picchu. The Yale professor serves as the namesake of the National Geographic Bingham Desktop Globe. This globe was developed by National Geographic in association with Replogle and features the best of both companies' strengths: NatGeo's exacting cartography and the American globe manufacturer's superb design. The Bingham features an antique styled world globe that is 12 inches in diameter. The sphere is elegantly framed by a die-cast semi-meridian marked with latitudinal degrees, which sits atop a sturdy two toned base. Together the model stands 16 inches tall. The wooden base impresses with its tasteful composition, while the nuanced ornamentation of the die cast meridian gives this model an extra touch of decorative flair.
The Bingham features National Geographic's signature antique styled map. The parchment colored ocean background is complimented by the soft pastel hues of this political map. The desktop globe's extraordinary design is enhanced by the fine gold lettering of the contemporary place names and additional geographic information that adorns the model. Bring the pioneering spirit into your home, office or school with the National Geographic Bingham Desktop Globe. The exquisite cartography dazzles with this Replogle world globe.
I like the color and the base mounting. Attractive addition to my office.
You just can't go wrong with National Geographic. Love this globe, highly recommended.
