Vintage, Technical, and pre-Book Service N.G.S. books ~ c. 1895 - 1956

Once upon a time, the Society did not have a formal or structured book department or staff (hard to believe now!) ... ...in the early years there were 'accidental' books, either by chance or favor. Some various monographs and myriad scientific reports made their way to publication with hard covers. Essentially, the popular book releases started with 1907's Scenes From Every Land, followed with a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th edition (e.g., 1909, 1912, 1918).  From there, NGS's books were mostly nicely…See More

Jeff,

It was folded, just like the one with the line.

If you join the group in which the discussion is located (in this case the Maps/Supplement/Index group) you will be able to comment directly to the discussion.  As a bonus, whenever someone posts to that group, either a new discussion or comment to an existing one, you will get a notification.

Welcome to the 'Ephemera & Collectibles' group Jeff !

Jeff, In one of Scott's discussions on old indexes, you mentioned to Mel that you have a revised copy of Nathan's guide (2000) that Roger gave you before his passing. If you have access to it, I was wondering if if you could see if the January 1983 maps of DC are referenced in his map supplement section.

A discussion of this item can be found at:

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks so much, Jeff.

This helps my research into this item greatly.

And thanks for the additional information.

It's definitely food for thought.

Yours in collecting,

Tom Wilson

Dear Jeff,

  Just a quick note to acknowledge your request and I'll look into these 2 questions. 

Best wishes,

Cathy

Hello again,

  The obituary in file does not give exact dates for his title, but merely states that he retired in 1996 after 30 years at NGS and that his work focused on administrative and financial matters such as postal rates.

  As for your other question about a television show for children, one of the librarians is looking into that.

Thank you for your patience,

Cathy

Jeff,

Feel free to email me any images of these covers.  Just to be clear, the list you want updated is "Variations to the Covers of the National Geographic"?

My email is:   wilsong@comcast.net

Thanks for everything, Jeff.  I got them all added into the discussion.  I used everything you sent me except one duplicate image for Nov. 2003.  Let me know what you think.

Jeff,

I have a quick question re: the Chautauquan, 1904 article about Panama by Grosvenor.

Which volume is it?  I see more than one from that year.

Thanks,

Tom
