Atlas editor viewerAtlas  Editor Viewer
made in Japan c.1950s

What a beauty! This is a 8mm / super 8 film viewer, and a marvel of 50s engineering. It is fully functional- it uses AC 240 V, and a 6V, 10W lamp [& has a lovely bakelite electrical plug.] You can see from the image it’s been made to sit into a desk top; -or it can stand alone and is quite portable.

This editor viewer is model #880. Atlas made many 8mm film viewers, but for my money, this is the most beautiful. Who cares if you never use it to actually view film? It’s a lovely piece in its own right. It will lend industrial vintage cred to any room!

60s – the world as we knew it

Earth and Moon GlobesReader’s Digest Earth and Lunar globes
made in USA, c. 1960s

Here we have two globes – Earth and the Moon, and an accompanying Atlas [not photographed, but part of the collection.] The earth globe has a teak base, brass orbiting arms, and it features raised mountains. The lunar globe is metal, and sits on a plastic ‘crater’ base [difficult to capture in this image, it’s out of shot.]

The Moon globe is inscribed with the [then know] lunar features and the moon landing sites. It is [hilariously] way out of scale with the earth globe, but obviously necessarily so.

The lunar globe is a little discoloured in places – it’s had a long hard life due to the fascination we all have with the moon and its places. The earth globe and atlas are in top order.
