Our substantial and handsome Kingsley floor globe combines up-to-date National Geographic cartography with the classic blue ocean color scheme of our best-selling maps. This cradle-mounted globe sits securely atop a walnut-finished hardwood base. More than 4,000 place-names are detailed, and raised relief suggests the Earth’s topography for an additional, tactile layer of geographical information. An on/off switch lets you illuminate the globe for closer study to simply to cast a soft glow in a den or living room.


The globe is named for 19th-century explorer and science writer Mary Kingsley. Traveling unescorted through countries including Sierra Leone, Gabon, and Angola, she lived with native Africans in the British colonies and wrote about their lives and beliefs. Her 1897 volume Travels in West Africa was an instant best-seller, although her opposition to some of the British Empire's cultural and economic imperialism attracted criticism.


Printed on paper gores over a plastic ball. Die-cast, copper-painted meridian and hardwood base with casters. Made in the U.S.A.

Started in the founder’s basement more than 80 years ago at the height of the Depression, Replogle has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of fine globes. National Geographic’s award-winning cartography group was founded in 1915 and has helped shape our vision of the world through the art and science of mapmaking.
