National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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


After almost 20 years of storage I'm unboxing my collection and getting back into things. I'm looking for Airplane Globe bound volumes. I'm complete from 1962-1974 but have a bunch of random ones from before then. Let me know if you have any extras.

Thanks Melvin, I had contacted the seller about shipping the smaller set they also have on ebay but he wasn't interested. I'm in Pennsylvania so a little too far to drive.

Contact Doug Wolters at his eBay store:

He usually has some inventory he doesn't list, and he lives in Northwest Virginia - a bit closer to home for you.

Also try Nick Koopman - a bit further, but he will ship. He's aging out of the business, and has some health problem of late, but he still has (last I heard) a huge inventory. You'll find him listed in the Dealer's Directory at the upper left corner of the main page in the Southern Region.

Good luck!


I just sent Nick an email. Paul Crist had introduced me to him 20 years ago when I first started collecting but I couldn't find his website anymore. Glad to hear he might still be in business.



Thanks Melvin, I was looking at that one too.

FYI, my emails got returned from both of Nick's email addresses, not a good sign.

I'll check around and see if anyone knows about Nick - and/or if I have other contact sources.

I'll let you know what and when I find out.


I have every issue from 1961 to 2018 what are you interested in

Richard, are they Albrecht Airplane/Globe bound volumes?
