Statement from Cram We hope that this listing of major, selected political changes can assist you in estimating the age of a world map or globe.

This listing is intended to determine an approximate time frame for the publication of your map or globe.

Knowing a globes age is one of the first things you should do to find out its value.

This will help you determine whether a globe is worth keeping as a family heirloom, or perhaps auctioning off to collectors.

Rand Mc Nally is one of the world's foremost publishers of maps, atlases and globes.

The company was founded by Chicago printers William Rand and Andrew Mc Nally and produced its first map in 1872 for its Railroad Guide. Rand Mc Nally made its first globe in 1880 and first road map in 1904. Look at the very bottom of the map for either a letter or an alpha-numeric code.

He also has written for "San Diego Magazine," "USA Today" and the Copley News Service.
