National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

I am in process of selling the estate of a gentleman who is now in a nursing home and among his collection of books and other items is a virtually complete set of National Geographic Magazines from 1904 to the 1980s. The collection includes a few older volumes and quite a few duplicates. I still do not have a complete inventory but am willing to check for any special issues or volumes at this point.
I recently found a number of single issues from 1896, 1898, 1899, 1901, 02 and 03. I have given them to an EBay store and they will be posted for sale individually on EBay.

I volunteer at a senior center and have been on the lookout for 1969 and 1970 editions of the National Geographic Magazine for a couple of the seniors. They are so happy that I am looking for them.

Would your client be willing to split up his set so I can get the 1969/1970 editions? I am trying to narrow down months but right now, the seniors are so excited about 1969 and 1970!


Susan, I can check to see if there are duplicates for these years and will let you know. Do you have an email address where I can contact you directly?
Hi Susan,

Are your seniors still looking for any issues? I'm trying to help my dad get rid of his collection.

If still available I would be interested in purchasing issues from 1904-1914. Which do you have and how much are you asking for them? Also I am interested in condition.
I have been looking through the boxes and found some duplicates for 1914. Let me get back to you.
Contact me at I have found most of 1914 and a few earlier ones for you.

Do you still have this collection?  Where are you located?  I'm in Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.
