"Wow, that's rather nice. :-) Looks like you may have a few thousand dollars there - see the second link yesterday provided by Keith Riggle.  If you're considering selling them (ebay?) probably best to provide as many pictures as…"

Koen replied to Caroline stewart's discussion New Collector
"I'm no expert, but the most important thing to establish in terms of value is whether you have original editions or 1964 reprints (sadly, the latter is much more likely). Reprint editions will have the word 'reprint' at the bottom of…"

"Thinks for those links, I've put these issues in my Ebay 'watch list' to see for how much they'll go eventually.  I had already 'saved' some bound volumes that precede my 1910 collection, and the rather low…"

"Welcome to this site Koen! I must admit ignorance on or about these items. I've seen them advertised but have never bothered investigating them. It would be interesting to see if others have any experience with them. Regards, Mel"

Hi all :-)I'm new here. I've been collecting Geographics for just a couple of years, but I've been lucky enough to acquire in fairly quick succession sets that went back to 1947, 1930 and, finally (for now!) 1910, which I'm rather happy with, especially considering issues prior to 1950 or so are a bit thin on the ground here in Europe - I'm in Belgium.Anyway.
