National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

I would like to announce the sale of a National Geographic collection on eBay, an auction beginning Sunday, April 13, 2014. The sale will last one week, ending Sunday, April 20, 2014. I believe the starting bid will be $29,500. The collection includes 62 bound volumes, many with supplements; maybe 1500 maps and pictorials, some going back to the 19th century; various ephemera (balloon, miniatures, indices, etc.); Maybe 125 pounds of 1911-1919, mostly poor to good, but about 15% Very Good to Fine+; 18 red brick in Poor to Fine condition; 62 1896-1900 in Poor to Fine+ condition, 12 of which are duplicates; 152 1901-1915 in Poor to Fine+ condition, 75 of which are duplicates. There are several very rare items including April, 1905 (2 copies with the color change - 1 copy regular), etc.38 reprints, 2 from 1922 and 36 from 1964, and maybe two dozen later reprints. Most of the basic collection has supplements; and, of course, all the reprints. That's all I can think of right now. The eBay ad will have over 100 photos and specific descriptions of each issue. I am not entertaining sales of individual items at this time. Thank you very much.
