My father and grandfather collected National Geographics and I found myself continuing the collection as I grew up. I currently have approximately 70+ complete years plus some partial years. My earliest issue is from July 1914. I have pondered getting rid of the collection because most of the older half is piled in my fathers basement and I am trying to figure out whether I want to put the money in to help preserve/display the collection. So my question is this, what would be a good way to help preserve/display a large collection? I have thought about getting slip cases and then just putting those in bookcases but I am kind of worried about the effect of the constant pressure that the slipcases put on the issues of a volume.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
