Graham, the possibility exists that I will trade terra cottas or other early issues for cwertain of the foreign editions of 1916-1930s magazines with the illustrated plates. The Canadian versions from those years have the same heavy stock for the plates as US members received, but I have acquired three versions with plates on the same stock as the text, whereas US/Canadian subscribers got issues on what (I think if I remember the ##) was 14-pound stock and plates on 20-pound stock that is considerably heavier.

If and when you acquire duplicates of European members' collections, I willingly will trade with each of use bearing the cost to ship and insure.

I know may used bookhandlers in England and Wales will have a smattering of Geographic products, and that some turn up in the rest of Western Europe (and not just ex libris university or institution, though such is most common for continuous run), from you experience do bookhandlers in Eire have them frequently. I have not found as any during numerous investigations, but we haven't been in awhile. Some thought of a trip the next Spring break for our highschooler, but we'll have to see.

One of my best bookstore finds abroad was in Oslo eight or ten years ago (our daughter I think was 6) three of the Society's 10-pocket map cases in pristine condition crammed full of more than 20 pristine supplements each and at least a few of the map indexes as well, also in pristine condition. If I remeber the conversion rate back then, the total came to about US$20. I almost never get such a find in the US. Made the whole trip for me, though it was fun watching Elizabeth march with her friend in the National Day parade before the monarchy and the prince's new ex-porn-star wife.

Again, happy collecting
Paul
