A 1936 12in. Library Globe by Replogle Globes Inc. Chicago

An elegant and early illuminated glass globe depicting political borders as of 1936 paired with a 1942 Rand McNally World Atlas Readers Edition. The Atlas has some unusual War time maps displaying Defense Problems of the US Navy, a map of Newly acquired and present US Defense Bases in the Western Hemisphere, and maps of Wartime Europe before and up to 1942. The Deco styled wooden base with a rich walnut finish conveniently houses the Atlas. This rare, early illuminated glass globe and atlas provide an excellent historical reference of early hostilities that led up to WW2 and the period up until 1942.

Political borders displayed include; Manchukuo (Manchuria occuupied and renamed by the Japanese in 1931), French Indochina, Siam (renamed Thailand in 1939), Iran (changed from Persia in 1935), No Nazi expansion in Europe (Austria and Czechoslovakia are still independent), Italian East Africa (Italians invade Ethiopia and rename it....existed from 1936-41)

The condition of the globe is very good with 2 pinpoints, some very minor scuffing and very slight toning. The base is in excellent condition with no chips or staining. The Atlas has some wear to the cover but the binding is tight and all the pages (slight toning of age) are accounted for.

A true collectible for any Art Deco enthusiast or history lover!!
