" 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
In regards to the 1986 issue of the Close-up USA series. The way you could find if they did any revisioning is to check the Northwest map. Mt. St. Helens elevation was 9,677 feet or 2,950 meters before 1980. After 1980, it was reduced…"
Recently, I've come across some 1971 National Geographics that have different back cover ads than what were normally on those particular issues. These issues were probably overseas issues. The overseas January February April and June issues had back ads for Bank of America. The March and May issues had back ads for Minolta. The issues distributed in the USA had Toyota on the back of the January 1971 issue. Mazola for the February issue. Northwest Orient for the April issue. Kellogg's cereals…See More
