Article Reprints / Offprints (NGS and permissioned)


Article Reprints / Offprints (NGS and permissioned)

This group is intended to share knowledge of / awareness of, some seldom seen "reprint", or "offprint", articles that originally appeared in the published magazine.

The vast majority of these items were generated by the Society on special request by non-profit organizations, government agencies, and other higher profile entities (authors, significant contributors).

Print runs of each varied widely, from a few dozen to thousands of copies. Some bear the personalization of the author.

My apologies for the delay in getting this group started.

It's my intent to post images of some of the older reprints / offprints that I have in my possession and, hopefully, entice others to do the same. As there is, apparently, no definitive listing of all such items, perhaps through collaboration, we can build one.

Stay tuned.
