This is a fantastic map.  It was in a holder that held 10 maps.  These maps used to be hung in a school house.  I could not find any date, I think it is turn of the century to about maybe 1920's or so.  It pulls down like a shade.  Because of size it was hard to photo.  It measures about 4 feet wide x about 7 feet tall.  The wood rod is 4 feet 5 inches long.  The rod is spring loaded just like the old time pull down shades, I am not sure how well that function works.  This map is used so it has wear/fraying on the edges and light creases.  There a little missing surface, a few rounded spots (see pic).  There is staining on the bottom and a few worn through/slightly ripped areas in the cloth.  The top area is very clean.  The material is like a cloth/canvas.  The subject matter is fascinating!


Nystrom is the United States' oldest publisher of wall maps and globes for classroom use. The company's educational products include an innovative line of student atlases, laminated desk maps, three-dimensional maps and models, CD-ROMs, web sites, and hands-on curricular programs with complete teacher's guides and detailed student lessons.

 The company began as A. J. Nystrom and Company on April 1, 1903, shortly after Mr. Albert J. Nystrom became the exclusive agent for W. & A. K. Johnson, school map publishers of Edinburgh, Scotland. The original staff consisted of one office worker, one map mounter (who also acted as order filler and shipping clerk), and Mr. Nystrom himself. He acted as both president and managing editor until 1923 and continued as president until 1938.

 Two developments early in our history allowed us to move from selling other manufacturers products to creating our own. In 1912 Nystrom acquired Goder Heiman Company, which added two product lines: the Kuhnert "relief like" maps (pictured right) and the Frohse anatomical charts. The company completed the first major publication that was entirely its own in 1915. It was the Sanford American History series, a set of maps that went through many editions and revisions.

You just do not see these antique school maps very often.  I have another 2 I will be listing separately (these originally were together on the same frame).
