in consequence of the missive, These references interested..., penned by Moni
I'm sure she picked up a lot of information from them.....
I've just checked the sale notice disposing of all George Austen's effects after his death( inlcuding his library).(Go here for an old post on the sale)
A terrestial globe by Adams
is listed, together with a microscope.
Dudley Adams was a mathematical instrument maker and was appointed "Globe Maker to the King" in 1794.
Perhaps the celestial globe was given away to one of JA's brothers...these globes were usually in pairs .
JA might well have studied these globes in her father's library, don't you think?
