About this Item

A detailed color lithographic map from Rand McNally and Co's "Indexed Atlas of the World", published in 1892 by Rand McNally and Co in Chicago and New York. This map measures 29.5"x22"". In 1856, William Rand opened a printing shop in Chicago and two years later hired a newly-arrived Irish immigrant, Andrew McNally, to work in his shop. 1859 Rand and McNally were hired to run the Chicago Tribune's entire printing operation, for who they had conducted business with previously. In 1868, the two men formally established Rand McNally & Co. and bought out the Tribune's printing business. The company initially focused on printing tickets and timetables for Chicago's railroad industry, and in the following year they supplemented that business by publishing complete railroad guides. In 1870, the company expanded into printing business directories and an illustrated newspaper, the People's Weekly. The very first Rand McNally map, created using a new cost-saving wax engraving method, appeared in the December 1872 edition of its Railroad Guide. Rand McNally became an incorporated business in 1873, with Rand as its president and McNally as vice president. Overall this map is in very good condition with some foxing and staining. The price for this map will be $1 with purchase of "full museum specification" framing through Arader Gallery. Bookseller Inventory # kk00529d
