    Default terrestrial globe recommendations?

    I would like to purchase a globe for someone who really appreciates maps. Can anyone here recommend one in particular, one that is good quality, and acceptable to map aficionados?

    Thanks!

    I think it's really a case where you need to decide what you want to say with the globe as much as the globe itself. What size do you want the globe to be? Tabletop or freestanding? Amusing materials, gimmicky effects, or just a plain and simple globe? The big question is, of course, how much you want to spend.

    http://www.worldwideglobes.com/ seems to have a nice selection of globes, but they seem a bit pricey to me. Admittedly, it's been a long time since I was in the market for a new globe, but the catalog shows the many types (and price ranges!) that are available. http://www.onlyglobes.com/ also looks ot have a nice selection for shopping purposes.
