I have two books of National Geographic Society Maps 1963 each book has ten individual folders. Book one contains maps of,Australia, Africa & Northern Africa, India & Burma. China & South East Asia. The Far East. Japan & Korea. The Bible Lands & Classical Lands. West Indies. Europe & Near East. Central Europe. Northern Europe. The British Isles.
Book two contains Canada, Alaska,& Greenland. Great Lakes Region. The Caribbean. Mexico & Central America. South America. Pacific Ocean & Hawaii. The Phillipines. Atlantic Ocean. Soviet. Northern Hemisphere. The World Map. Top Of The World.
I would be very grateful if anyone knows what they might be worth?
You should look in the legends or margins of each map and determine which monthly issue the map was published.
For example, the year of 1963 only had the following maps published:
February – Antarctica
April – Scandinavia
May – Southwest Asia
July – Central Canada
September – Australia
October – Africa, Countries of the Nile
December – Holy Land Today
Any other map you have was published in a different year.
If your purpose is to determine the value of said items for resale, I would suggest you visit eBay and perform searches by year (or if you have the time by month of issue) to find out “generally” what others feel they can obtain in sales.
