from vol. 1 1888 through 1967. All present with maps included. Unbelievable collection. Bound leather volumes in great condition.
Nice collection, but you do realize it says the word "Reprint" below the word "Washington DC on your volume 1 number 1 right?
So,does that mean they are worthless?
No Russ, just not as valuable, as I'm certain you understand the oldest originals are the most valuable.
A complete set of 1964 NGS sponsored bound reprints - Volume I thru 18 (Oct 1888 thru Dec 1907) have sold on eBay for as little as $800 and as much as $3400 since Dec 2008 - when I began collecting data. It's all in the timing - and this is a hard time to be selling.
The average 1908 issue sells for about $51; the average 1917 sells for about $17.50 The price begins to plummet after 1920 and and hits rock bottom by 1970.
This data is aging, but should still give you an idea:
I'm definitely interested! I have everything from 1909 to present already.
Do you have some pictures of the full set? Are they shelved or in boxes?
They are in boxes. If there is anything specific you would like to see, I can dig through them. I only photographed the ones I thought would draw the most interest.
I sent you a private message invitation, unless you prefer to chat in this main thread.
I've decided to sell only the early volumes (1888-1909) Because of high shipping costs. Please let me know if interested.
