Note: Rand McNally's first globe was a 12" terrestrial produced in 1887 (Warner). This 18" floor globe appeared seven years later and is an impressive production. The graphic elements are very clearly rendered, in the best fashion of wax engraving. A horizon ring is still employed, with a metal stand that is unique and unusual, apparently of the "Aesthetic Revival" school of design that flourished at the end of the 19th century. Isothermal lines are shown for January and July, as are submarine telegraph cables. The gores show a water mark "& Sons" with a "96" below, so this globe had been issued in 1896. The political geography is pre 1898 and the Spanish American War (see Cuba, etc.). Total height from base to top of globe is 48 inches.
