Vintage World Globe - 1939 10" Replogle - WWII

Replogle Globes, Inc. 10 inch Standard globe. Clear . Accurate . Up-to-date. Replogle Globes. Chicago. c1939.

This globe is comprised of coated paper gores over pasteboard, with a time dial at the North Pole. The oceans are finished in medium blue, and features an analemma scale in Pacific. Very detailed globe showing the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Internatinal date line, Railroads, Steamship Routes and Existing and Proposed Air Routes in bright red. Also shows the Great Wall of China and South Pole Expeditions.

The globe's base is a metal three tiered stepped base with a wooden meridian which carries a metal indexed strip attached to it.

Dating this globe: Shows Manchukuo and "Chosen (Japanese)", French Indo-China. Inner and Outer Mongolia, Austria and Sudetenland absorbed into the Third Reich. A quite detailed late 1930's political globe.

The globe is in fair condition. The gores are all tightly attached and do still retain good color.The equator tape is present but is scuffed and split in small areas. The globe itself is very soiled and has scattered stains throughout. There is no major loss of map but there are some scuffs. None of which affect the map! The base shows wear in the form of some loss of finish and it also turns as the screw underneath which attaches to the globe has rusted in its threads. The wooden meridian shows wear in the form of scratches and some loss of finish.

This little globe is by no means pristine BUT it does show an incredible time in history, the dawn of WWII. This is also reflected in the small metal base (due to war time cutbacks) and the wooden meridian (again due to war time cut backs)!

As Always, ENJOY!!!
