National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Since I was a kid beginning to read I would look at my grandmother's NG Magazines.  She kept many and gave me some.  I wrote school papers on some and saved some pertaining to my hobbies at the time.  I have lost many of them, and am looking for soe of the very special ones I well remember from 50+ years ago.  I also have a deep interest in WWII and would like to have some of the issues I've come across in a recently acquired DVD-rom package of all NGM issues from 1888 to 2010.  (I highly recommend this to anyone interested in these magazines.  Every issue is covered, including all advertisements.  There are 7 discs which can be downloaded onto most systems -- Windows, Mac OSX, etc., and they can be printed by article or page.   There are many, many features that make this a truly excellent and terrific package, and it costs around $60-$70.00.  Just go online to

My one great goal is to find a copy of the June, 1951 NGM, which has a lot of beautiful, fascinating articles.  I have found a place to get the 2nd issue I wanted, so this remains as the big one I'm trying to land.  If anyone can help me I'd be most appreciative.

My e-mail is  and I'd like to hear from someone.  (I also have a fairly large collection of random issues from the 1919's, early 20's and some from the 30's, 40's and 50's.  I think I have most all of the issues from 1960 to 2000, if anyone is interested in getting any of the above.)

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you.

I may be able to help. Am I too late? This post is almost 3 years old!

I have many duplicates of the 1950's. If they go to a good home, I'm happy to give them away.
