Do you have a list or photos you can share?

I need a bit of time to get a complete list together (also fotos) but obviously must (and will) do so. I just wanted to determine at this time the level of interest for the earliest magazines and books.

I am definitely interested in what you are describing as "mint copies of rare books".

Feel free to send a list directly to me at:

Okay, Charles, will send list and photos sometime next week...tom


I would definitely be interested in the early single issues you have. I can be reached at:


Mark Van Winkle


I'd also be interested in single issues. Contact me at Thanks


I will appreciate receiving a list of the items you have for sale and their condition. I am especially interested in the books.

I am still interested in receiving a list of the NatGeo items you have for sale.

Sorry for the delay, Richard. I wanted to make proper photos...

I am off to the US tomorrow and upon my return in 2 weeks will finalize the inventory and photos...

Dear Richard,

I have finally (!) got my information together about the NGS books I have kept since obtaining them from Edwin Buxbaum in the 1970’s. I just posted something on the Buy/Sell/Trade NG Collector list. 
I  have a 40 MByte zzipfile with the pictures. Pll, ease let me know if you are able to receive the files via email.If not (file too large), I can arrange a link from Dropbox.
I am working on the same kind of info for the magazine.
