"Dale, It is, according to both Buxbaum and Nathan, the Volume I, No. 4 issue dated October 1889 that was observed to have originals also dated May 1889. I'm trying to determine when Buxbaum first described this tidbit of information about…"

"Hi Mel I currently do not have access to my Buxbaum or Nathan books (or anything else as they are all in storage during renovations). What you are saying is even more exciting for Caroline. It's probably safe to say that these were produced…"

"Quick follow-up: Page 15, fourth paragraph down, of Roger Nathan's book also reveals that known originals dated May 1889 exist. Cheers! Mel"

"Actually Dale, there exist known "originals" dated May 1889, according to Buxbaum. I have not personally observed one - just citing to old guru. Good to hear from you! Mel"

"Caroline, Earlier, you posted the date of your Vol 1 No. 4 issue as May 1889. The actual Vol. 1 No. 4 issue was dated Oct 1989 (there was no May issue for Volume 1). Also, in 1922, the National Geographic Society issued reprints for Vol 1 No. 2 and…"

"Hi I used to be a dealer and I am currently holding hundreds of pre 1950,s including 1910,s and up. I am discounting my excellent condition issues at $5 a piece as I need to liquidate my inventory. Should you be interested in purchasing some,…"

"Wow, that's rather nice. :-) Looks like you may have a few thousand dollars there - see the second link yesterday provided by Keith Riggle.  If you're considering selling them (ebay?) probably best to provide as many pictures as…"

"Koen, When I received your message, I reviewed the link you provided and checked very closely. I was surprised to learn that none of the editions are reprints.They are all originals.   Thank you for sharing the information.…"

"I'm no expert, but the most important thing to establish in terms of value is whether you have original editions or 1964 reprints (sadly, the latter is much more likely). Reprint editions will have the word 'reprint' at the bottom of…"

"Thanks for the info Keith. I mistyped when I said I had 312 issues, I meant 132 issues! I was hoping to find out a value on the May 1889 issue. It is in perfect condition and is numbered Vol. 1 No, 4. It seems to be amoung the rarest. To be honest I…"

I am a novice collector and am looking to learn more about the basics of collecting - condition, value, ect.My father bought an old car at an auction when I was a child and there were several for the early 1900's in the truck.
