The Bardin Family was one of the greatest British globe makers of the late eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries. The firm was established by William Bardin (1740-1803) around 1780, when he collaborated with Gabriel Wright in producing 9 to 12 inch diameter globes .These New British globes were subsequently sold by S S Etkins, T M Bardin's son in law following his death in 1819.

The featured globe is characteristic of the terrestrial globes of William and Thomas Marriott.

It is prominently dedicated to Sir Joseph Banks, then President of the Royal Society.
