Did you look at all of the photos for that first item? It looks like the seller took pics with his webcam while he was shirtless!! haha Not the best way to sell items on eBay, but I've seen stranger things on there before.
That second item I've never even heard of. Not sure if it's worth $35 bucks to me, but I'm curious on what it looks like. Do you own it?
Yes that dude needs a lesson in how to present his items. haha. My pojnt was it was a good deal for a bunch of issues.
The book is a really neat book about the Magazine and Society and gets into the aspects of collecting and background info., such as you wrote on your blog page about the maps and cartography (FDR, White House, etc). You seem to have more than a passing interest in the NGM - like me! Ha
oh, cool! Maybe I will get it. I just bought a copy of "The Round Earth on Flat Paper: Map Projections Used By Cartographers" by Gilbert Grosvenor. It's in the mail. Have you checked out that one? I was flipping through my copy of "100 Years of Adventure & Discovery" - the huge yellow tome of NGS history - and I noticed that the Grosvenor book was referenced a lot.
