Our Eaton III Tripod globe features the most up-to-date National Geographic cartography in colors reminiscent of parchment globes from centuries past. More than 4,000 place-names give an accurate view of contemporary political boundaries. Raised relief helps distinguish topographic features around the world. The globe is formed from precision-cut paper maps that are transformed, using heat and pressure, into rounded hemispheres. The hemispheres are joined by hand, and die-cast meridian and brass knobs are added for a classic look. Some assembly required. Made in the U.S. by Replogle, a globe manufacturer for more than 80 years.

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, and a replacement globe ball can be purchased separately whenever maps are updated.
