Dekker and van der Krogt note that Edward Stanford, "sold int. al. Malby's globes" (p. 179): for example, a globe signed "THOs. MALBY & SON .... 1859" with an additional label "EDWARD STANFORD AGENT" was sold in these rooms as lot 46 (25 July 1997). The Stanford label on the present globe has been pasted on, but comparison with lot xx demonstrates that this is a Malby globe retailed by Stanford (e.g. the cartography, the position of the pasted-on label, and the wording used to indicate the magnetic poles). This globe can be dated to the period between 1852 when Stanford established his business, and 1867, when Alaska was sold to the United States by Russia.
