A globe, held at the Whipple Museum, Cambridge, bears a brass plaque reading: A GLOBE OF THE PLANET 'MARS' Scale 1 in to 450 Miles Constructed by Captain Hans Busk, of Trinity College Cambridge And presented by him to his College. MARCH 1873. The stands, size and cartography of these two globes are identical. This globe differs only in Herschel Island Continent, and the placement of the manuscript names.
Captain Hans Busk, the younger (1815-1882), is known as an army reformer. He is recorded as having commissioned Malby to make martian globes from Proctor's charts (Proctor, 1873). Other than this, his connection with Martian cartography is unclear, but it is noted that he was a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (cf. ODNB).
Richard Anthony Proctor (1837-1888), the author of several books on popular astronomy, published maps of Mars based on telescopic observations made by the astronomer William Rutter Dawes (1762-1868) -- after whom many of the features are named -- during the apparition of 1864-1865. The inlets and straits on this globe appear similar to those later seen by Giovanni Schiaparelli (1835-1910). Proctor was a proponent of the theory of the plurality of life on other planets.
