"OK, I appreciate you letting me know. A picture of the spines of 1900 to 1905 would be probably adequate for me to give you a good price. At least allow me to bid on the collection. Have a great day!!! Mike Oliphant "

April 1898 The Klondike Number

I currently have three April 1898 copies of the National Geographic Magazine on eBay for sale. I point this out because I rarely have any of what I call the rare 12 between 1896 and 1903. The issues that truly make a complete set of loose issues a quest. This particular issue is popular because is was a guide to an American Gold Rush published during the gold rush. Now a note on what makes something rare. Most collectors would say it would be based on the actual population of an item. I want to…See More

Hi Mike,

I've purchased from you on line several times in the past, the last batch about 2 months ago.  I was wondering if you or someone you know are selling any 1964 reprints.  I'm looking for individual issues not bound volumes.  I need 81 between the years 1891 & 1907.  If you know of anyone, I can provide a list of issues I need.  Thanks.  Tom Wilson

Hi I have issues from my grandfather who was a writer for National Geographic. They go back to 1921 to 1970 when he passed away. I can no longer keep them. If you are interested please contact me at 604-738-5809
