National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

I'm a PhD student on a research team analyzing the representation of animals in popular culture magazines.  Right now, we're building a collection of National Geographic Kids magazines from the past decade for our analysis.

Does anyone have any pre-2008 issues of NG Kids that they're willing to sell or loan?  (We won't need them after the analysis, so we would be happy to return them at that point.)  Or could anyone recommend other places to look for them?

We're also keeping our eyes out for pre-2004 issues of Kids/World as well as issues of Explorer, so any advice on them would be much appreciated as well.  Thanks so much for your help!

Thanks for your help, Melvin! We've managed to find most issues from the past decade through eBay, but there are a few elusive ones we haven't been able to find yet. We'll keep looking!


I have the three older categories of youth books and magazines (last three categories) on:

Please feel free to look and see if there are any subjects that you are interested in.  I can then scan content for your use.

Thanks so much for your response!  You're collection is very impressive.  Unfortunately, we've decided to limit our focus to the past decade, but I'll let you know if we decide to broaden our focus later on.  Thanks again!
