National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Hey all,

I was recently given a modest collection of National Geographic magazines, that I am looking forward to putting up on my bookshelf and one day start reading. Going through them and sorting them in chronological order, I have flipped through some of them and noticed that the maps/supplement sections on some of them are missing (which is understandable as most people would take them out and hang them up on their wall and get lost with time).

So I was hoping to fill in these missing gaps, and so hopefully someone will be able to have spares or extras. I also have a few extras and doubles of issues and supplements so maybe we can work something out. Hopefully you are from Melbourne, but if not, I am sure we can work something out.

The maps I am missing are:

2000 June July Aug

1990 March

1986 Oct

1984 Dec

1981 Dec

1976 Feb

1973 Nov

I wouldn't also mind expanding my collection so if anyone has extra copies from before 1974, please contact me. My collection before 1974 is patchy both in terms of actual issues and maps so please respond here or message me and I am sure we can work something out.

I also wasn't able to find any Australian resellers or distributors (most were American on this webiste or from Europe) so if anyone knows who I can contact, please let me know.

I in turn have extras from (some complete years some not) from:

2014-2000

1996-1981

1978

If you have something that you might be missing, feel free to let me know. 

Thank you.

There is a "Dale" (check the members listing above) from Melbourne. Locate him in the member section and send a private message.

He is an avid collector and may be able to put you in touch with others in Australia.

Also, there have been, from time-to-time, other Australians who have offered magazines for sale or trade - you will have to be persistent with a variety of member searches to find their postings.

Good luck!

Mel

Hey Melvin,

Thank you so much for the reply. I will get in contact with Dale and hopefully he will be able to help.

Hi, Pece.

Did you find the maps that you were looking for?  If not, please see my post...
