National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Earlier I had posted information that we are moving and we wanted to sell our collection from 1889 to 1970s.  We also have maps for sale.  If you are interested in these, please let me know, we may agree to sell items separately. We have bound volumes, some reprints, and single issues. I can provide a complete list of issues and maps.

Hi.  I have about 1140 editions in my collection and am looking for complete years: 






1919 on back.

I am waiting for a reply on someone who wanted 1930-1959, so will get back to you on those as soon as I hear from them.

With regard to earlier years, I will attach a list of what I have in single issues and reprints.  Let me know what you are interested in for the 1889 through 1925 period.



Hello I may have some of the issues you are looking for in 33,34 and 41. Just recently started going thru my dads collection. 

This reply was for Chad Traywick. Sorry I'm new and not exactly sure how these messages work.

Yes, I'm interested in '33, '34, and  especially '41 if they are in reasonable condition.  Attached is my tracking spreadsheet.


The person interested has decided not to purchase.  I still have all of the above years you asked about and many pre 1919.  You can contact me privately at



I'd be interested in single issues as follows:

1908 all issues except Oct.

1909  Jan, Sep, Oct.

1910-1911 all issues except Aug.

Please let me know if you have any of these on sale, condition, and price.

Best, Gabe

Gabe, I will get back to you in the next few days, have been out of town.  I will pull these off the shelf and see what their condition is and let you know soon.  Please e-mail me privately at and I will let you know the condition and prices. 


All issues 1889 to 1970 are still for sale since the person interested has decided not to purchase.  If you are interested, please let me know.


I'm looking for about 25 issues from 1889 to 1902 that I'm missing.  How complete is your inventory and are you selling individual issues?

Updated inventory attached is up to date and I am selling individual issues. You can contact me directly at with a list of issues you are looking for.

Lynn - I am interested in the entire collection. How do I best engage with you in a conversation about this?

Contact me at or by phone at 612-750-1993.  Where are you located, I am in Minneapolis, MN.
