Comments about Authentic Models Old 4.5-Inch Diameter Globe Bookends:
The quality of this product is very good. I ordered it to give as a graduation present for a young man graduatiing from seminary going into international student ministry work on college campuses. I am very surprised and disappointed that the globes are not both of the world map. Somehow I missed this in the description. The constellations are a good idea but come across as more into the horoscope emphasis than constellation documentation. This is why I will be returning the bookends. If both were the world map I would definitely want to keep them as the quality is excellent.
