Let me show a piece that did not get away :
Well.... bottom line these tid bits such as this manual are important to collectors. I want to say that I am always looking for globe catalogs, manuals and advertising from major American globe makers such as Holbrook, Joslin, A. H. Andrews, Weber Costello, and of course Rand McNally if you have any of this material for sale please contact me directly and I think we could come to terms!
***UPDATE 8/30/16*** Just today I got my hands on an amazing little item, an original Rand McNally globe catalog from the early 1930's perhaps 1930 or 1931 here is a picture of the cover:
It's a great resource, some pages are even color, and it's interesting to see prices, and available items from that time period, for example they made a series of slated globes, but I've never seen one for sale.............humm..........
