Am emailing you now thanks Richard!

an email is waiting for you at  Thanks!

Do you ship overseas? I'm interested in your loose issues (I'm missing 330 numbers between 1917 and 1960), but I have no idea of how much it would cost to send them to Spain - or how much you want for them, by the way ;)

Thank you, I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Carlos...

I am happy to check shipping cost to Spain.   Please reply with your postal code, thank you.

So that I understand properly understand, you are interested in 330 individual issues, correct?  My price on each issue will be low, but I think we need to check on shipping costs first as i am guessing that cost will be pretty high.

Once you provide postal code and confirmation on the number of issues, I will get the shipping cost and then we can discuss issue price.

Thank you Carlos,


That's right, I'm interested in 330 individual issues.

My postal code is 11207 (Algeciras, Cádiz, Spain).

Thank you!

Juan Carlos.

Hi Carlos - I have some information for you on shipping.  Please send me your email address so I can give you the details.



I just sent it to you via friend request.

Thank you!

I m interested in your single reprints. Please emaill me at cost and shipping fee.

Hi Bruno

Am emailing you now.  Thank you for your time and interest.


Here is a spreadsheet for the 1st twenty years (1964 loose reprints). With a number of inquiries that came in, I responded that the total number of issues is 189; I was incorrect so am correcting it here.  The total is 179 (not including maps).  I have seen other information that the reprint complete collection is 167...

If there is anyone out there who can chime in with additional clarification, please do so.

Thanks All!


Oh...and in case anyone is curious, the 1st 20 years (1888-1907) is actually 18 volumes...thanks!
