The Rand-McNally Grammar School Geography textbook contains detailed chapters on all 50 states and each continent. It discusses the topography, climate, industries, and population of each country and region. With a 19th Century perspective, the Preface declares that "Geography, as taught in schools, …has come to be a study of the earth as adapted to the wants of man." Its 167 pages contain numerous maps and illustrations, most in black and white. The Appendix is devoted to Kansas, as this is the Kansas Edition. The front cover contains a blue and red globe depicting the Western Hemisphere, while the back cover's image depicts the Eastern Hemisphere.
Rand-McNally & Company was established in Chicago in 1868 by print shop owner William Rand and partner Andrew McNally. The company incorporated in 1873. The company ventured into educational publishing, and began offering a line of globes, maps, and geography textbooks in 1880. It became so lucrative that they opened a textbook department in 1894 featuring this Primary School Geography. By 1923, the company was publishing Goode School Atlas, later Goode’s World Atlas as a standard geography text for high schools and colleges.
