Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

I just added cover images of the 3 latest Collector's Editions for 2018 to the master photo album . . . & the 2 newest HISTORY mags.

A quick question or two on these Collector's Editions.  I notice they are published by Time Inc. (Time/Warner) and not Fox or Disney or whomever.  Is there an agreement between the Society and Time?  If so when did it start?

It's the thing of logistical "distribution". Time handles the printing and placement of them, even thought technically, they are still "published by" National Geographic Partners, LLC. Time started handling things for Society back in 2011, with "The New Universe" (Aug. 2011), which was the 26th collector's/special edition.

side note: there has been a total of 87 special editions since 2001. I have all of them but 2 (still hunting!)
