National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

I'm looking to start a NG collection, hopefully starting around 1930 or so. It seems like shipping is a problem with larger collections so I'm hoping somebody in central NJ or eastern PA might be looking to sell? If so, please reply or contact me at north.wrestling

I am a collector in the Phila. area.  I have many issues dating back to 1905 that are duplicates and I would be willing to sell or trade.  I also have many duplicate maps dating back to the 1920-30s.

I have NG going back to 1978 (with one issue in 1982 or 83 missing) in northern Bucks county PA (just across the Delaware River). Contact me at if you are interested. We are moving and do not want to throw these magazines into the recycle bin.

My father was a long time subscriber and novice collector.  He recently passed away and I am looking for a good home for his collection.  His collection includes a complete collection from from 1936 to present (with prepaid subscription running to Dec 2011 (only about 6 issues are missing from '36 to present).  Most are in good to mint condition (little to no binding dimage or fading).  He also has most issued from Jan 1919 through June 1925 with a few issues between June '25 and Jan '36.  Most of the early issues are in poorer condition (faded appearance and some with binding damage and a few with missing covers).  I also have many maps.  Being new to this site, I will attempt to attach a copy of my inventory.  I live in Maryland,


hi Glenn


this sounds really interesting.  I may be heading down that way in a couple of months.  I will contact you then to discuss.  Don't hold them waiting for me though!  good luck


I still have the my father's complete collection.  Are you still seeking a collection?  If so, where do you live in NJ (north, central or south)?  If we can agree on a price, I might be agreeable to driving them to you.  My present collection is just over 1,000 magazines.  How does a price of $750.00 sound if I drive them to you?

Fairly complete collection from 1936 forward with assorted issues running from 1919 to 1925.

Please advise.

Feel free to email me direct at


I am in NJ - have from 1973 thru 2003 missing about 25 books in that time period

Geeting ready to move

I live in Illinois but travel to NJ and PA on occasion.  I have all the NG's from 1962-2001 (except Sept-Dec, 1962 and two issues from 1984).  Are you interested? contact me at:
