"A very nice collection Richard, worth several thousand dollars (the first 20 years of reprints, as a complete collection, have sold as high as $3000 on eBay). I wish you the best in selling this collection! Mel"

Selling bound NG 1888 - 1986, NG holders 1987 - 2008

Beautiful collection starting with 1888-1907 NG 1964 reprints. 1908 thru 1910 are original issues bound in covers identical to 1964 reprint set. 1911 to 1986 are all matching bound volumns in the Albrecht cover (airplane & globe) with many, many supplements/maps attached or in rear cover pockets. Included are NG storage cover from 1987-2008. This collection is in excellent condition and no odors. Check out pictures.  …See More

Hi Richard, so you are in Michigan as well ? I love this state (as an environment - not economy!). Feel free to chat sometime, I like to talk about Nat Geos!

Some one mentioned in another post that they got Albrecht plane and globe covers from you. I am looking for a supply so that I can have my newer (post-1980) National Geographics bound.

Hi Richard,

you know what happened? I wasn't ignoring your comment from 9-Nov. I used to get an auto-email to let me know if someone left a comment, or responded to any posts....but I guess it is "off" - so I just today saw your message.

Yes, I like to chat about Geos, and see what is of interest to other people. You mention you have more than just the magazines? Do tell....what books or other items do you have?

Myself, I have the issues of course, and then I went crazy and got lots of books, prints, some odds and ends Heh-heh. I even procured 2 coffee mugs, one NG and the other the NG channel.

Look forward to talking, in the meantime have a safe and enjoyable holiday week.

- Scott S.
