I have 50+yrs of Nat Geo to sell

1970 to date, all but one year in Slipcovers, all boxed.  Some pre-1970 loose, all maps across all years, but in their own box.  I live in Texas City, TX, so if you're close, check it out.  I don't want to select issues to sell, and I definitely don't want to ship a thousand pounds of magazines, so it's a 'pick up' deal.  Kurt 281-770-2115

Hmm..I don't see how to add photos, so I'll post that separately

Do Abstract Articles Exist?

In the back of Volume 1, Number 1 (I just have a reprint), there is an abstract of the minutes beginning with February 17, 1888. Some of the later addresses from April and May were integrated into Volume 1, Number 1. But what about the earlier ones beginning in February? I don't see them listed in my 1888-1946 index. Were they perhaps printed by NGS as a one-subject paper, maybe in a limited run? I've never heard of them or seen them listed. Does anyone know about transcriptions of these…
