One of the greatest treasures in The New York Public Library's collection is a hollow copper globe, just 112 mm in diameter. What makes the Hunt-Lenox Globe unique is that it is one of only two known instances of a historical map using the phrase "HC SVNT DRACONES" ("here be dragons"). The Hunt-Lenox Globe is recognized as one of the oldest terrestrial globes, and the oldest to depict the Americas.
