To fellow National Geographic collectors,
Here is one source for collectors to get free Nat Geos in their areas. I have gotten two collections from Craigslist from people posting them in the free section. One collection included 150 bound globe and plane hardcovers from 1912 to 1968. Another collection I got this week was a jackpot. The person said in the add he wanted a good home for over a hundred bound volumes. When i called he said the years covered were 1888 to 1978 complete. I went there yesterday and got a collection custom bound in the same binding for the entire collection. It was in new condition. 1888 to 1907 were bound reprints
Check daily the free and book sections for 2 or 3 areas near your home ( I use a 100 mile limit). Be patient.. It may take a month or two....Many people just want to get rid of collections and are not money greedy.
Thanks Phil - excellent advice!
