About Me:
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; 9 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

Those reprints are still available. I am a total novice on what to ask for them. Guess I'll have to do some research. Perhaps you might tell me what a "fair" price might be?

George- check out http://events.nationalgeographic.com/events/special-events/ to see what is happening at headquarters. In any event, Catonsville isn't that far- I'm out that way every once in a while on my way to downtown Baltimore. Come over for a visit- send an e-mail to jdl@copper.net and we'll figure out a time.

LOVE the background image you've updated with !! It's a beautiful sight, and I wish I had a 'mattress' of Geos to lay upon, lol.

Thanks Tom.  I will take a closer look at eBay and see what I can find in my price range to supplement my missing issues.

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.

Hi Tom,

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.

Regards,

Jeff
