The Geographia Map Company was founded in the early 1900s by Alexander Gross, a native of Hungary who had established Geographia, Ltd, a commercial map publisher in the United Kingdom. In the United States, the new Geographia initially produced maps of the New York area, expanding into neighboring urban areas. Beginning in the 1940s, Geographia entered a period of rapid growth, introducing world maps and atlases, topical maps detailing aspects of World War II, and a catalog of atlases, street guide books ("Red Books"), travel guides ("Famous Guides"), wall maps, and street atlases covering dozens of cities in the United States and Canada.
