National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

I have a bound family collection years 1909-1972.  It in excellent condition but we need the space.  We would like to see these excellent documents go to an appreciative party.

I am very interested! Where are you located?

The books are in Bend, Oregon.  Where are you?

Nashville, TN..... Hmmm.....this seems like it might be difficult. haha

We’re driving through Bend in about an hour! I hope you get this notification in time! Accept my friend request so I can get your address again! I know it’s written in the envelope you sent, but we left it at home not thinking we were going to Bend anytime soon. I hope we can drop by and thank you in person for the magazines!

How serious are you about getting them?  Maybe we can work something out.

I'm very serious, though I am mainly looking for the pre-1935 issues (I already have a non-binded collection from 1935 to present) , but if there's a way to get them all that is reasonably affordable, I'll gladly take them. I love reading these things, and preserving history and past information.

My goal is to have my books preserved and honored.  I am willing to ship them media rate.  Just so you understand...there are 13 banker size boxes.  They weigh 47 pounds each.  We considered driving them back but shipping is less.  If you are a serious collector who would take care of them and enjoy having them in a collection I am willing to do this. 

I am absolutely a serious collector.. My only concern is the price of shipment, as I am not wealthy and cannot throw around thousands on shipping.

We are willing to pay the shipping.  I am looking into options that will be financially feasible.

I can ship US Post Office media mail for a reasonable amount.  If you want them send me an address and I will get them to you.

Just touching base again to see if we can work something out. I sent you a request and message with my info. Please let me know if there's anything else you need from me. I'm really excited and would love to have and show off your collection!

Thank you,


What is your phone #? For shipping.
