Description William (1802-1888) and Alexander Keith (1804-1871) Johnston began as apprentices to the Scottish globe maker and publisher James Kirkwood before his workshop suffered a fire. Setting up their own workshop, they became one of the most successful globe makers in the world. Their largest model, seen here, is one of the rarest and would have been made for institutions or the most prestigious private libraries and won a number of medals in the Great Exhibition in London.
