I have two hard cover leather bound National Geographic Magazine books.  One is Jan. 1916 Vol. XXIX, No. 1 and the other is July 1916 Vol. XXX, No.1 both in great condition. What is their worth and would you be interested in buying them from me.

Thank you for contacting me and looking at the website I have on collectibles. (  ).  Unfortunately, most collectors find bound volumes a problem since they usually have only the pages, and no covers maps or ads. In addition, collecting a bound run requires finding them all in the same binding.... almost impossible and then you would have to continue with newer years with the same binding..... again impossible since the binding trade is almost gone.  There are some folks that want only the content, but most of them are overseas as they don't care about US ads, etc. Your best bet is the NGS site.  If they are something matching someone's binding type, then you will find interest. You will note that out of 34 collectible categories, the only bound examples included are of the NGS bound of 1888 thru 1908 of the 1964 reprints.
