Post-Nathan Article Reprints

On pages 17 through 30 of his 1982 book “Collectibles of the National Geographic Society” Roger Nathan has an impressive, albeit by his own admission incomplete, list of over 300 Article Reprints produced by the NGS.  These reprints span the years 1889 to 1979 with the last one listed being “Our National Parks” from the July 1979 issue of the National Geographic Magazine.   Nathan does not discuss third party article reprints (Bindery Books comes to mind).

I purchased a more recently produced Article Reprint entitled “The Disease Detectives” from the January 1991 issue.  This 32-page pamphlet contains numerous photo and drawings, and discussed the worldwide effort to track the planet’s epidemics.

Knowing that Nathan had done research for a revised edition on his guide, I consulted our resident expert on the subject to see if Roger had listed any newer article reprints in his unpublished update.  To my surprise, there are only two additional article reprints documented:

“Quietly Conserving Nature” from December 1988, and

“La Ruta Maya” from October 1989.

I would be curious to know if there are any other post-Nathan article reprints besides these three out there.
