Hello Ms. Strang,

I am interested in the set you have for sale. Are they the original prints?  I have home east of Bordeaux, so if are able to come to an agreement the shipping is easy.

Thank you 

Matthew Weaver

Dear Mr Weaver

Thanks for your email.

YES they are original prints (the bounded ones as well as the individual issues as per the pictures).

I live in Asia but if it happens that you go to Paris, I can put you in touch with a mem ber of my family who will show you the originals (parlez-vous Francais?).

I am open to fair negotiations and ready to reach a mutually accepted agreement .

Regards

Alexis Strang

Ms Strang,

Thank you for the reply, and pardon the long delay.  My wife is fluent in French and my children speak it as well.   So the hard cover bound one, they set the six mag's together in a book style is that correct?

What are thinking a fair price is for the whole set?

Cheers,

Matt

Dear Matt (Please call me Alex ....and I am a male -Mr- not Ms!!!!)

Thanks for your reply.

May be better we communicate by email? (My email is wawalexis@aol.com)

No problem for the delay. I have them since almost 30 years so I can wait some time more.

And YES the bounded issues are 6 month-6 issues together same like on the pictures attached to my add. The size is a large book width and height 1cm more than regular issues and thickness = 6 issues.

For the selling price, few month ago a potential Buyer sent me prices he said he found on specialised website giving the here under quotations. I could not verify???  so may he requoted according to his own price he was willing to pay???? But I am open to discuss the price and find a mutual agreement

Dear Matt

Few month ago we did exchange emails about my collection 1929-1992 of National Geographic magazine. I recently have been offered 3700 USD by an Indian man but I dont trust too much, so if you are still interested, I am OK to sell;

Dear Matt

Sorry I was not clear about pricing in my earleir email.

The Buyer offered a flat price of 10 $ per issue for 1950 to 1980 = 360 issue= 3600$

but I refused because I dont want to split m y collection, it has more value all together, but I can accept 10$ per issue for the whole collection.
