National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

I have uncovered a mistake in the March 1983 Atlantic Gateways map. The town of Hershey, Pennsylania is misspelled as Hersey on the map.

Great fine, Stephen !!!

My copy has the same mistake.  I wonder if it was corrected in later prints?


I looked over the Guide Maps to United States History which came with the Historical Atlas of the United States deluxe edition. The mistake was corrected on that version of the map.


I love the Historical Atlas of the U.S. , and I have both the 1988 Centennial and the 1993 Revised editions . . .


You know a map lover when they find this kind of discrepancy! Nice find.
