National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

As Jeffrey Persons stated, there are 2 variations to the picture on page 614 in the article on cats.

Varient 1 shows a cat in front of 10 Downing Street. Varient 2 shows a kitten licking its lips .

I have 2 copies of Varient 1 (1 bound and 1 loose issue) and 2 copies of Varient 2 (1 bound and 1 loose issue)

This is so cool, Phil.  Unfortunately, I'm on the road for ~3 weeks and away from my collection. :-(

I'll let you know which version I have when I get back home.


One of each: variant 1 - loose; variant 2 - bound

I just wonder how or why these kind of variances happened . . . ? !

Variations of ads could be reasoned as regional oriented advertisements. But that's pure speculation on my part.

As to variations of photos within a main-line article of a particular issue - Now that's the right question!

End program! (hint: I Robot)...


I'm finally back home.  I have version #2, "M-mm-m, but that tasted good!".

I just had a look and I have variant 2 in both loose and bound copies!
