"Tom, I have done a quick cross-check between the two indexes. They are very close, but are not identical in their place names. The changes I can detect appear to relate to border shifts within the USSR. For example, in the 1951 index Delyatin at…"

Hi Dale,

 

Nat Geo Collection.xls

 

Yes I am still collecting according to a well-rehearsed routine that I've developed since I first contributed to this site.  Approximately every quarter, I visit a few second hand shops.  I buy up every copy of Nat Geo on their shelves, at an average 40c/copy.  When I get home, I compare them with my collection and weed out any duplicate poorer quality editions.  I then complete the cycle by returning these to my local Red Cross bin.  Then I can enjoy reading the new ones I've acquired.  My current collection list is attached - there are many gaps.  How did you build your complete collection?

Andrew
