"Great! Yes, the 1914 issues are bound, as are Jan-June 1934. Everything else is single issues in fairly good condition -- March, May, June, July, and September 1917 are missing covers but everything else has them and is readable, although…"

Great! Yes, the 1914 issues are bound, as are Jan-June 1934. Everything else is single issues in fairly good condition -- March, May, June, July, and September 1917 are missing covers but everything else has them and is readable, although the oldest issues are of course a bit delicate. The spines have the most wear and tear; I'm attaching a photo of the oldest spines, which are in the worst condition, as well as a photo of a 1911 issue I pulled out at random to demonstrate what the issues themselves look like even when the spines are a bit tattered.

I haven't gone through to check every issue lately, but I can confidently say that tears and stains are rare. The collection has been stored in our house for decades (climate controlled environment!) so it hasn't suffered from storage problems:

I'm happy to give you a list of the older issues we do have, since the collection is only complete from 1950 onward. Are there any years you're especially interested in?
