FS: NGMs (1906-1920), books, promo brochures, maps, and other "stuff"

I've collected NGS material for about 20 years and am taking steps to focus my collecting interests. I have a lot of quality material, including single issue copies of the magazine 1906-1920, books since 1912, special publications, promotional brochures, maps, reprints, indexes, research reports, technical papers (strat series and eclipse series) ... even a stratospheric balloon bookmark! Ideally, it would all be of interest to a single individual, but I would be willing to handle in specialized lots (e.g., books, mags, etc). Let me know of your interests and we can go from there.

I am interested in single mags from 1906 to 1914, and maps & pictorials for about the same period. Photos of what you have to sell would be useful. Thank you.
Here is the information on the mags. I also sent this info and related photos to your em address. The run of issues 1906-1914 is incomplete. It contains the following issues, which are in generally VG condition. I have not yet checked on the presence of maps and supplements, but did include a photo of loose supplements.

1906: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12 (missing #10)
1907: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (missing #6)
1908: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 (missing #12)
1909: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (missing #1)
1910: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 (missing #s 2, 12)
1911: 8 (missing all but #8)
1912: 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12
1913: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (missing #s 1, 4, 8)
1914: 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12 (missing #s 1, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11)

With the exception of publication brochures and other ephemera, I doubt you have much that I don't already have in duplicate, but if you dont get any offers for the lot, I may be willing to take parts. Best not to let anyone cherry pick, and probably your best bet is individual listings with scans on eBay
Best of luck and if all else fails, contact me

Really
Thank you for your comments and suggestions. I must say that I lost faith in ebay several years ago, as both a buyer and a seller.

Do you have June 1909 National Geographic Magazine? Thank you.
Yes. The entire listing is noted above. But I am interested in selling the mags as a lot, rather than individually.
Here is the full list of mags (including supplements and maps) for the 1906-1920 run. I've posted some images in the Photo area of the forum.
