"Scott, All of these blue covered, annual pamphlets (1993-2010) index all the NGS magazines: NGM, Traveler, Kids, etc.  They do not cover books.  This distinguishes them from the per volume indices (1898-1992) which had two each year from…"

" Tom, I forgot to come back and clarify/ask on this point. So this 2010 Index (32 pgs) you obtained then was only for NGM correct? ie, it doesn't index any books, Traveler, etc.  ?- Scott"

"Oh ~ you know what . . .  I just remembered something else: On a handful of occasions, GHG would insert (a la these photos in Oct. 1914) unused-but-printed sheafs of aborted material. Similar to how they were still using up miscellaneous…"

"LOVE the background image you've updated with !! It's a beautiful sight, and I wish I had a 'mattress' of Geos to lay upon, lol."

Scott T. Shier replied to George Thomas Wilson's discussion October 1914 "Extra" Illustrations
"Hey Tom, Funny, I was just re-pondering this briefly the other day . . . e.g., that sometimes a group of photos would appear 'wedged in' a 1910's issue of NGM that seemingly were random, or in the least not apparently connected w/…"

"Scott, I just got it.  As we suspected, it is not hardcover.  Also, it is 32 pages, not 1,200 which makes a lot more sense.  I'd like to thank you again for pointing me in the right direction.  You said that you hadn't…"

About Me:
unoffical occupation: since 2009 I've been care-giving for 3 of my quite ailing a live-in helper (in every way conceivable).

Life Member of The National Geographic Society. I became very interested in the Society itself during the 1988 year when I was but 10. Became a proud member myself for my 12th birthday, January 1990. At last I didn't have to wait for my Grandparents to be done with their issues and give them to me : )
Favorite National Geographic publication:
Hard to narrow down, but especially the vintage 1910-1920's era, and also the wonderful 1988 Centennial year.
Favorite travel destination:
my beautiful state!

Sounds great Scott,
I always enjoy talking with NG collectors & hearing about their experiences. I'm retired and available to chat quite often. I've been a NG member & collector since 1978. Hope to chat soon.

I actually just discovered this website a few weeks ago. It's very cool - I don't really have any particular interests in NG. I've been a fan my whole life, my Dad has an extensive collection and now I'm working on mine.

I had a gold border and used the words "National Geographic" on the website. So I got the nasty letter.

Were you still interested in buying an April 1913 volume, is this for someone you are in contact or for personal collection? Recently aquired a complete set from 1911 to date

I haven't been on the site for a few weeks, went to the Custer WI Renewable Energy Fair on Friday. Many plans will be in the following months & years and will try to make an imact with alternatives. For Geographics, it will take a while to sort everything out and start with major projects.
