I'm surprised I haven't seen any comments on the lack of supplements again, for 2017. Maps are a big part of geography and there have been several changes that haven't been addressed as supplements…Continue

I have the Sept. 1 version. I was wondering, what is the difference between it and the Aug. 28 version besides the date showing in the title area? On internet views, I don't see any other differences…Continue

Illustrations in NGM in 1920s
7 Replies

In the 1920s magazines as an example, black and white photos are usually called illustrations.  But some were called engravings.  I don't see much difference in them.  Does anybody know why some were…Continue

I think a trend is starting where members get one cover and over-the-counter magazines are another. I saw this cover at CVS which shows "Birth of Booze" as compared to the one I received which shows…Continue

"You are absolutely correct Harold on your assertion about some "update" maps are in order and far past due !Now that you mention it, yeah, I guess it's surprising Phil or Tom didn't mention the lack of map supplements this year…"

Supplements

I'm surprised I haven't seen any comments on the lack of supplements again, for 2017. Maps are a big part of geography and there have been several changes that haven't been addressed as supplements this century. And from what I see, a lot of the younger generations don't know where a lot of countries or even States are located.  It's over time to update continental maps for Europe, Africa, and Asia, and a World map that isn't so dark colored for countries like the one they include for new…See More

Harold Woron replied to Steven Traylor's discussion National Geographic World maps
"The map given to new subscribers is OK but not as good as the ones that came as supplements. The countries are too dark in color and less detailed. They really need to update and issue supplement maps again. The maps that came with the magazines…"

"I think that may have been their point for the date change.  This is how Central Europe looked the day the war started.  Of course it looked the same four days earlier but that date had no "meaning"."

"Thanks, Tom. I have Nathan's book and have read that. It just didn't make much sense to change the date and nothing on the map.  They should have just added a note that changes may be forthcoming with Germany invading Poland. …"

"Interesting tidbit on Photogravures: A few years ago, "Les Nus de Drtikol", a folio of 30 photogravures by Frantizek Drtikol was sold at Christies for over $30,000.  We are getting ours much cheaper than that, I'd say. Tom"

About Me:
Started collecting NGM in 1972. Remember seeing them in school in the 1940s during WWII. Have issues and supplements back to early 1900s. They had great maps and supplements for many years and then stopped - bad mistake! Now see they are starting again. Way overdue for new wall maps of the world, Europe, Asia, and Africa which have all seen boundary changes or new nations since last supplemented.
Favorite National Geographic publication:
National Geographic Magazine with map and/or picture supplements.
