ONCE PROPERTY OF STATE DEPARTMENT GEOGRAPHER SAMUEL WHITTEMORE BOGGS. - THE BEGINNINGS OF THE COLD WAR

SOLD. Weber Costello Co. Aeronautical Globe. Diameter 12.120 inches. Scale 1:41,375,000. 653 miles to one inch. Copyright by Weber Costello Co. except as to modifications made and material added by the Government of the United States. ... The government of the United States has not recognized the incorporation of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania into the Soviet Union, nor does it recognize as final the defacto western limit of Polish administration in Germany (the Oder-Neisse Line); some other boundaries do not necessarily correspond to the boundaries recognized by the United States Government. Sovereignty is not indicated for a number of islands in the Pacific Ocean which are claimed by the United States and also by the United Kingdom or by New Zealand. Adhering princely states arte included within Pakistan and India. The ultimate status of each of the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Hyderabad, and Junagadh is uncertain. [Note] Weber Costello Co. Chicago Heights, Il. 1948. Coated paper gores over pasteboard. No time dial at North Pole. Oceans finished in pea green. Nautical distances shown in statute miles, certain 1937 boundaries in Europe and for Japan and the U.S.S.R., the new de facto and peace treaty boundaries, state or province boundary, frames for island groups. Issued without meridian or other mounting. Sits on black bakelite circular stand marked PROPERTY OF DEPARTMENT OF STATE. A highly unusual globe custom made for official government diplomatic purposes. Firstly, the diameter is slightly larger than the standard 12" globe bought in map stores for home use. The longitude and latitude lines are subdivided and closer together than on commercial globes. The boundaries are either 1937 ones or else changed by state department geographer Dr. Samuel W. Boggs. A long note on surface in very fine print explains the 1947 U.S. posture on certain Soviet and other land claims; some like Kashmir is still under contention today. In defining new boundaries, Dr. Boggs had great discretion in creating borders and was instrumental in developing and shaping the Office of the Geographer during the thirty years he presided over it. For instance, this globe shows both East and West Pakistan (1948) but Dr. Boggs declined to mention Israel because its boundaries had not been definitively determined. He named Cape Boggs in Antarctica (70 degrees Lat., 60 degrees Long.) for himself. Dr. Boggs served as State Department Geographer from 1924 until his death in 1954. The globe then was owned first by his sister, later her son, and then her daughter until acquired by Murray Hudson. Literature: Leo Dillon. The State Department's Office of the Geographer: History and current activities. In: The Portolan. Journal of the Washington, D.C Map Society Winter 2005-2006 pp.35-45.  I.D.#10128. SOLD.
