National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

I have a complete collection from January 1906 through December 2000.  They are all in good to very good condition and most issues have original maps.

I was about to list these online when I discovered this great forum.  I plan on waiting a few weeks to see if there is any interest here.  After that, they go up on eBay.

The issues from 1923-2000 are original issues.

The issues from 1912-1922 are what appear to be 1964 reprints.  They are all maroon hardcover except for the 1912s, which are green.

The issues from 1906-1911 seem old enough to be originals.  However, the jbcarey website indicates they could be "Format 5 in an individual 1964 reprint".  I would appreciate an expert opinion on these.

My strong preference is to sell by the year(s) for issues starting in 1922.

I know what I can get for these on eBay.  Given that, feel free to make a reasonable offer on any or all.

The 1964 reprints are "only" for the years 1888 through 1907 inclusive. They were reprinted in loose individual issues and in bound volumes. In both cases, the front cover of each "reprint" magazine has a small all-caps "REPRINT" centered and about 2" from the bottom edge.
