Bound National Geographic 1888-1907 set, Worth how much?

Does anyone have an idea of how much a  complete 1964 bound reprints of National Geographic's 1888-1907 is worth in value? How much could it sell for? There are 17 books in all. No missing pages, tears, creases. All maps are included.  Set is in good collection. Thanks!

Are you looking to buy a set and want to do your homework?

Or, are you selling . . . if so -- please add a photo or two. Also, confirm:  is this a former library copy set (ie, w/ tags, cards, markings, etc.) ? 

thank you,

This set belongs to me. I'm just getting an idea in case I decide to sell in the near future. I purchased this set on eBay in 2015. My guess is that this set belonged in someones private collection. I just don't know. I thought I heard 1,000 copies of these sets were published. 



About 2/3 of the way through my selling guide I provide you with:

"Total Number of Reprints Published by the National Geographic Society (NGS)"

Then, near the end of my guide I provide you with:

"Reprint Sales (individual and bound volumes):"

Hope this helps!


Thanks Mel! I think I have your guide saved in one of my Geo books!!

I update it every year.

Thank you, very good!
