"Tom, I read Gilbert's article and it's something. As he recites the highlights of his career, you can just about make a reading list of the articles that are best to read. Mark"

"It's not possible to tell for certain if the 1903 is a reprint, but if you look at the first two photos they say REPRINT on the bottom of the cover just below Washington, DC."

"Mark, I don't know if this will be helpful or not but, as a rule, professional society do not publish the minutes of their meetings.  They sometimes publish abstracts and reports on those meetings. If you look in your 1888-1946 cumulative…"

Do Abstract Articles Exist?

In the back of Volume 1, Number 1 (I just have a reprint), there is an abstract of the minutes beginning with February 17, 1888. Some of the later addresses from April and May were integrated into Volume 1, Number 1. But what about the earlier ones beginning in February? I don't see them listed in my 1888-1946 index. Were they perhaps printed by NGS as a one-subject paper, maybe in a limited run? I've never heard of them or seen them listed. Does anyone know about transcriptions of these…See More

It's interesting finding oneself looking to re-build a past NGM collection isn't it? When I was young I had what I thought was a "huge" NGM collection, and then while in the care of someone else (for long-term safekeeping), they got rid of them without telling me. I vowed I would get a Nat Geo collection again, and what feels like eons later, I did, ha-ha.
