#3 is actually the 3rd edition NOT 4th.

His first work @ 1935 was considered a pamphlet, not a guide, and was titled: "Collecting National Geographic Magazines."

first edition of the "Guide" was @ 1956

second was @ 1962

third was @ 1971

My mistake. I meant to type 3rd edition but was thinking of something else. Thanks for pointing it out. I will correct it.

Hi Scott

I very may well.  Please allow me a day or so to get back to you on this subject.



PS I have a huge near complete collection in need of liquidation so if there is anything else you are looking for, please let me know.


Hi Dave

Thanks for responding. Any word if you might have any of the three listed?



Hi Scott

I will be in the company of the books tomorrow;  I will be able to answer you then.  Please forgive the delay.



Hi Scott

I am sorry to say I have not yet located the volumes you want.  I will check again on Wednesday.

Thank you Scott


Hi Scott

I am in possession of A 1971 Buxbaum.  What makes me possibly think it is not what you are looking for is that the book I have is bound in blue cloth with what appears to be a gilt lettered burgundy leather tag.  It also is in a slipcase...

The book I have is in near perfect condition and signed by the author.  If you are interested, please let me know thanks!


Thanks for trying, but I have the regular 1971 in slipcase. The one I want is the leather presentation copy. 1 of 50 printed. Thanks again.
