Reader’s Digest World Globe

R460.00

This Reader’s Digest world globe, made by Replogle, is identical to the globe that we had in our house growing up, so presumably it’s more or less the same age as me! I was born in 1978 (a loooong time ago now!) which fits in more or less with the dates for the globe – Rhodesia is listed in the place of Zim,which would date the globe to between 1965 and 1979.

Given that it’s getting on a bit in years it’s not that surprising that it’s starting to show signs of wear. The paper is a bit tired looking in places, as is the metal stand, and it looks like someone gave it a good bop at some point as there’s a small dent on the one side (which fortunately isn’t very noticeable). But it’s still doing a darn site better than a lot of the globes I see, and while it’s definitely not in mint condition, the overall impression is one of a mature, but dignified and still very attractive globe!

Dimensions: 40cm tall x 30cm in diameter
