Lot 0072 Details

Description
  • Publication Date: c1892
  • Title: untitled.
  • Globemaker: G.W. Bacon & Co.

    Advertising globe with label; Wear Simon Long's Son's Clothing. Best on Earth. Cosmopolitan was a magazine struggling to find its way in this marketplace, which was becoming increasingly complicated and crowded. The high-toned monthly was only three years old and already in its death throes when John Brisben Walker bought it in 1889. Desperately needing a larger pool of subscribers, Walker envisioned a magazine that could meet a mass audience's taste for spectacle, but that wouldn't in the mean time sacrifice its identity as a periodical fit for more elite palates as well. He tried, in other words, to straddle and stretch the lines between 'dignity' and 'sensationalism' as one of his contemporaries put it. As soon as he heard of Nellie Bly's departure on her whirlwind trip, Walker sent one of his female writers, named Elizabeth Bisland, on her own trip around the world, traveling in the opposite direction. He viewed this new and modern travel story as the ideal opportunity for promoting his magazine to both mass and genteel audiences. The result was that Bly and Bisland, the two lady travel-journalists, came to act as emissaries for quite different periodicals, which were operating within a highly competitive and segmented literary marketplace. And Walker demonstrated that despite an apparent 'loss' to the World and to the sensationalism of new journalism, he, Bisland, and Cosmopolitan in fact succeeded in the race for success in the literary marketplace. Elizabeth Bisland went west; Nellie Bly went east. 6" pasteboard orb with uncoated gores. No time dial. Oceans finished in olive green with Ecliptic, Equinoctial Colure, British seasonal ocean routes and distances in days, and analemma. Raised on a turned ebonized pine baluster column with turned base. Orb extensively restored with some loss of detail where North Africa and Middle East intersect. Schoolroom child's globe converted to advertising. with added Bisland round the world tour interest. ENGLISH ADVERTISING GLOBE WITH MISS BISLAND'S TOUR ROUTE. some loss in Levant region
