Very large collection of National Geographic magazines/inserts for sale

I have a pretty large collection of National Geographic magazines
Probably close to 2000 magazines.
I'm selling the entire collection due to downsizing.

The dates range from 1897 to the present. 1897 (June - original - fair condition), 1909 (September & December - great condition), a few in the teens (not very good condition) with an ever increasing number in the 1920's, 30's, 40's and so on. Many duplicates from these years as well.
The more recent they are the more likely I am to have complete years. Many are bagged to protect them.

I also have some bound National Geographics ranging from 1917 through 1928 (19 bound books but not complete for this date range).
Many inserts/maps are included in the magazines but I also have an entire Rubbermaid tub of extra inserts.

I'd prefer to sell them all at once.

Make an offer.
More photographs can be sent if you have specific interests or I can just show you if you are willing to drop by.

I'm in the Parkton, Maryland area (21120).

Vol. 11 - 1900

September w/Map Supplement


Vol. 13 - 1902



Vol. 15 - 1904

January w/Map Supplement

March w/Map Supplement

Also, what is in your Rubbermaid tub of extra inserts?

I've sold most of my earliest originals so I don't have the ones you indicate you need.   

In that time frame I have 1897 (June - original - fair condition), 1909 (September & December - great condition)

As far as inserts in my tubs of spares (usually lesser quality) I have a couple dozen from the 40s, some from the 30s and many more as you get into the 50's and more current.   The inserts I kept that are of better quality are:

1915 - July - Map of Europe

1916 - July - Map of Mexico

1922 - February - Countries of the Caribbean

1937 - British Isles

1938 - July - Reaches of the Nations Capital

1938 - December - Bible Lands

1939 - October - Central Europe and the Mediterranean

1940 - March - Classical Lands of the Mediterranean

1940 - December - The US and adjoining portions of Canada and Mexico

1943 - September - Pacific Ocean

1946 - February - Northern Hemisphere

1946 - April - India and Burma

1946 - July - United States of America

1947 - June - Canada, Alaska and Greenland

1947 - October - Countries of the Caribbean

1947 - December - South Central US

1948 - March - Australia

1948 - June - North Central US

1948 - December - Southwestern US

1949 - April - British Isles

1949 - June - Europe & Near East

1949 - October - The Top of the World

My hope is that I can offload the entire group, magazines and all to someone local rather than deal with individual sales which I'm frankly getting tired of doing.   If you are interested in anything I can get your contact info and let you know if I decide to sell individual items.
