title SUMMARY /title

In the second part of this study of the 3 foot globes we analysed the celestial globes. We directly examined 31 globes, the answers to 9 questionnaires and the two editions of the Libro dei Globi. We found out that four cartouches, used as the means of comparison, present some variations according to the editions which proved to be five for the convex globe and two for the concave one.

The research allowed us to discover a previously unknown type of celestial globe. We attributed it to the first Venetian edition. There are only two examples of this type: one at the Centro Studi Ricerche Ligabue in Venezia and the other at the Harry Humanities Research Center, University of Texas at Austin.
