Has anyone ever found a cache of these "empty"?

They used to be produced in huge numbers and people would buy the covers and take their magazines to the local bindery. I recently 2 empty bindings on ebay, but would like to find another hundred.

I have 1900-1975 in these bindings and would love the complete set.

Wow, I hope you may have found some information elsewhere since you first posted this. I am sorry nobody responded. Myself, I do not have any "insider" leads or tips on how to find more of the Albrechts. I do think they were the nicest covers ever made for binding National Geographic Magazine!

I have 1908 through 1946 in the Albrecht bindings and I would love to find volumes prior to 1908 and from 1947 through June, 1966 already bound in the "globe and plane' bindings. please let me know if you find your mother lode of bindings. Thanks, Mike Ryherd, Olympia, Wa
Hello, I am also looking for at least 32 of these Albrecht bindings. Please keep me in mind if you find them. It would seem that so many people are looking for these, that we could get someone to make up a new batch! Thanks!
