Abstract:
List of all inserts and maps included in volumes of the Bahá'í World books.
Notes:
All documents in this collection were published as pull-outs from the original editions of Baha'i World. A 'pocket' was glued into the books open on one side. The maps were inserted in the pockets. In some volumes a pocket was glued inside both the front and back cover.

Most of the images in this collection were professionally scanned at 600ppi at Kinko's, as arranged and sponsored by John Conkling, between 2005-2010. Some were digitally edited to remove paper folds and tape marks by Scott Jaenicke. They were then resized and edited by Jonah Winters, 2010.
