Note: Rand McNally issued their first globe in 1887 (Warner). Soon afterwards they were producing globe gores for other makers, in this example the American Globe & School Supply Co. of Seneca Falls, New York. Warner lists only one known example by American Globe, an 8 inch, 1891 globe also with Rand McNally gores. Their output must have been small and this 6 inch globe may be scarce. Total height from base to tip of the globe is ten inches.

Reference: Warner p. 23, 121.
