This ridiculously awesome moon globe was made by the artist John Russell (maybe the finest British pastel artist of his time) in 1797.
The poor moonmaps of his time "led me to conclude I could produce a drawing in some measure corresponding to the feelings I had upon the first sight of the gibbous moon through a telescope".
