I think the double-sided Africa map from 1980 I have was from 1988. The 5 digit code number matched the 1984-85 version of the map. One sneaky way to revise a map supplement was to change the names and titles of the people who worked on the…"
Roger makes no mention of this in his revised notes. Prior to 1985 there were very few maps that were produced in plastic. The map you mentioned was not available until 1985 in the double-sided plastic version. The…"
Did you or Roger Nathan ever note changes in the sales versions map supplements. An example would be the February 1980 Africa/Its Political Development map. When it was first sold, it was sold as a double-sided paper-rolled map supplement.…"
" Thank you Jeff for getting back to me on the questions I asked about. So none of the Making of America maps were ever reprinted or revised as sales versions after the series ended in 1988. I know the geopolitical…"
Roger makes no mention of these three questions that you bring up. I do have copies in my collection that I mentioned before. The July 1991 map was issued single sided as well as double sided. The single sided…"
My name is Jeff Persons and I think I can answer your questions. I won't be able to check with Roger's list until tonight.
The only Making of America/ Canada map that was revised was Atlantic Canada 11/1993 (original date was…"
I have some questions about the following map supplements. Did Roger Nathan ever list any of the Making of America or Making of Canada historical map supplements as being revised or reprinted? At least 2 of the Making of America maps had errors on them. Also, were the Making of Canada supplements of Ontario, Prairie Provinces, and The North ever sold as rolled plastic sales versions? Finally, was the July 1991 map of China was sold as a double-sided supplement or were the maps split and sold…See More
"My only copy has the Bushmen - sorry; and I no longer have available the large collection of extras I once had.
I also didn't have time to watch T.V. back in those days - something to do with massive amounts of study, not enough time to do so,…"
I was wondering if there are any April 1973 National Geographic issues that have this special listed on the cover. All the April 1973 Geographics I've seen list Bushmen of the Kalahari instead. According to the National Geographic, the May 1974 issue tv pullout said The Bushmen of The Kalahari did not air in 1973 supposedly due to a strike. Another interesting fact is that the 1972-1973 season only had three specials instead of four like the previous seasons. The Wolper website does list The…See More
I was wondering if anyone knows the reason why the August 1959 issue didn't have a photo on the cover? The July issue had a cover photo. Then, in September 1959 they put a photo on the cover and had a cover photo since then. Another question I have is similar. The July 1979 issue is when they redid the cover by getting rid of the oak border. Then, the August 1979 issue reverted back to the old style. The September 1979 issue went back to the new style. Was there ever a reason for that change?See More
