“North America.” From Rand, McNally & Co.’s Indexed Atlas of the World. Chicago: Rand, McNally & Co., 1908. 26 x 19. Cerograph with printed color. Short repaired tear in lowe left. Else, very good condition.
An original 1908 map of North America. By the early 20th century, the Rand, McNally & Co. firm from Chicago had established itself as one of the world’s premier cartographic publishers. Their maps were known for their copious yet clear detail and this map is no exception. Of interest is the indication along the top of the different time zones, something established at the end of the nineteenth century.
