A CAP­TAIN'S VOY­AGE

Scottish Field - - ARTS & ANTIQUES -

A pair of 200-year-old Cary Globes ex­hibit­ing the tracks and dis­cov­er­ies of Cap­tain James Cook and Cap­tain Ge­orge Van­cou­ver’s voy­ages into the un­known are set to be ex­hib­ited at Dum­fries House in East Ayr­shire. The in­tri­cate an­tique globes, which date back to 1816, were made by broth­ers Wil­liam and John Cary who com­bined their skills to cre­ate these del­i­cate and ex­tremely de­tailed snap­shots of car­tog­ra­phy his­tory. The Cary Globes are on per­ma­nent dis­play in The Earl’s Study at Dum­fries House and can be viewed by mem­bers of the pub­lic through guided tours.
