The globe consists of 24 hand coloured engraved segments on a plaster coated sphere and bears the label of Edward Stanford, who took over the Malby business and updated the papers in1873.

Very few 36-inch Malby colossus globes can be located, and most are in national collections. Of the others, two are in the collection of the University of Utah, three are in private collections elsewhere in the USA and three are in private collections in Great Britain.
