With award-winning, up-to-date National Geographic cartography, and a classic look with antiqued brass-plated meridian and a walnut-finished hardwood base, our new Hudson Desk Globe is an excellent reference for home or office. With more than 4,000 place names, it’s a comprehensive, current reflection of the world’s political boundaries. Printed on paper gores over a plastic ball. Made in the U.S.A.
It’s named after English explorer Henry Hudson (ca. 1565-1611), who explored the region around modern-day New York City while searching for the Northwest Passage to Asia on behalf of the Dutch East Asia Company.

National Geographic is proud to introduce our new line of globes for home, office, and classroom. Our floor-standing, tripod, and illuminated globes are all manufactured in the U.S. by Replogle, which has been making globes for more than 80 years. Each globe has more than 4,000 place names, printed on durable press-craft, plastic-impregnated paper.
Started in the founder’s basement 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.
Each handsome globe comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Globe arrived damaged, replacement was damaged as well. Was able to salvage parts from one to fix the other.
