Here are three covers for the December 2010 issue. One is without the bar code and the flap and King David on the left hand side. The other two have King David on the right hand side. One with a bar code and flap and the other with no bar code, but has a flap. The one with the flap and no bar code was mailed to a member (I have the polybag and address label inside the bag. The other one with the flap and the bar code is a newsstand issue.
Tom, This is an oddity involving page 858 of the December 1976 issue. During the press run of this issue Rowe Findley, the issue editor for the story on Australian wild flowers became aware that the word "fuzzy" should not be broken at the end of a line. He had the printers stop the run and reset the last four lines in the middle of the paragraph. By changing the word "colors" to "hues" the lines could be reset and the word "fuzzy" remains unbroken.
I am not sure. The individual I received it from lives in the US. He cut the mailing address out from the label. Inside the magazine it just mentions US and Canada in the subscriptions area with no mention of the UK. That was my thought initially, but I don't know how else to tell.
I don't know if this interests you, but it is a book authored by Roger Nathan copyright 2000. He had an avid interest in state boundary monuments and he started in 1982 and ended in 1985. He stated he became "hooked" much like collecting geographics. He first worked on the Delaware-Maryland monuments and then went to the Mason-Dixon line. Many of my visits with him involved him driving me around and showing me these monuments and giving me the history behind them. It is a very interesting read. I am not sure how available the book is...he gave me a signed copy in 2003.
It took me awhile to digest your Map Indexes article. Very nice and it brought more clarity to this area of collecting. I would like to add two other outline globes, one for April 1949 (British Isles) and the other March 1950 for Africa. I do not have the ones for 12/50 Western Europe and 3/53 for Mexico and Central America in my collection
I have 4 other outline globes all copyrighted in 1962 Three of these are reprints British Isles, Pacific Ocean and Classical Lands. The fourth is a revision, Canada, Alaska and Greenland.
Also, do you have an index for Feb 1921? Europe, showing countries... I have one, but it is with a white cover, not the conventional cover. I have looked at it under high magnification and the cover (if there was one)does not look to be detached. Also, have you seen a may 1933 index of the United States. I do not have that one as well.
You left a comment on my page. I think that was great that you posted the covers of my fav issues....the Moon issues. I would like to find the older 1880s to the 1960s, as my collections starts in 1967. I know that alot of folks are selling their collections.
