Building erected in Leicester Square, London, to exhibit the 'great globe' by cartographer and geographical publisher James Wyld the younger (1812-87). Inside the speherical building, painted plaster of Paris reliefs illustrated the physical features of the earth at a horizontal scale of one inch to ten miles and a vertical scale of three inches to ten miles. Maps, atlases, and other globes (inevitably mostly Wyld's own) were also displayed, with access to the building via four loggias opening into each side of the square. The globe was exhibited between 1851 and 1861 to coincide with the Great Exhibition.
