As most of the regulars here at the 'Corner are well aware, I have both a love of maps and of indexes. So when I run across a Map Index, I am doubly ecstatic. I recently purchased an Article Reprint from June 1969 entitled "Deerfield Keeps a Truce with Time". The article itself is about the town of Deerfield, Massachusetts both its past and present. Settled in 1669 (300 years at the time of publication), this town was the site of a massacre of pioneers by Indians in 1704.…See More
Retired Programmer. Looking to complete my NatGeo collection.
I have a completed, individual issue collection with 100 of the 179 from the first 20 years being 1964 reprints including all 36 "red bricks". I also have a complete volume/annual index collection but I need 2 indexes: 1912 & Jan-Jun 1914 to upgrade from "Table of Content" only versions.
Also, I have 63 Map Indexes (still need 34 of those); a complete Map & Supplement collection (all original or 1964 reprint); a bound copy of "The Physiography of the United State" (1896) including all 10 monographs; 12 National Geographic parodies; 20 or so other publications with articles about National Geographic; 13 Article Reprints; and various other items.
Favorite National Geographic publication:
Issue: September 1912 (the headless headhunter photo)
Map: January 1902 (Progress map of the Philippines)
Map Index: 1961 (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics)
Index: January 1901 (Volume XI Jan-Dec 1900)
Article Reprint: March 1964 (The Last Full Measure)
Parody: January 29, 1966 (National Press Club)
Favorite travel destination:
Definitely Hawaii. Runners up: West Virginia, Florida, and Idaho.
Hey George. I struggle with technology, so I hope this message reaches you. The 1888-1907 reprint set I have is hard bound. My phone number is 425-750-0522 if you have any more questions. Thanks for responding. Mike
Thank you Mr.Wilson. Though I have been collecting NG magazines for a few years now, I am new to the maps collection. So far my love for NG Mags and maps in general have been exclusive. I will definitely check out this group.
My name is Jeff Persons and I was reading your post regarding the 1988 maps of the world with and without the Supplement line. I was wondering if the one without the line was folded or flat. The ones that I have that are flat (purchased from the Society) do not have the line. I am not sure how to contact you as I am just learning how to navigate the site. I have been collecting for over 50 years and have a very large collection of everything related to NG.
