The one hologram issue from 1984 is not from China, but was a back up issue in case the other issue was not ready in time for printing. Also, the other issue, November, 2003 shows two versions of the newsstand issue...it was not a duplicate as seen by the bar code. I have a few more that I will get to you soon.
I do not have anything but the year 1904. This is one of the very few items that has eluded me and other advanced collectors prior to me for many years. I did find a person who collected only this magazine and items related to it and he does not have this copy as well. I have tried many magazine and book dealers over the last 30+ years as well, all with no luck. I believe it to be vary rare magazine and would very much like to have it in my collection.
Here are three more magazine articles to ad to your list
1. Aero Digest December 1935, page 45, Entitled The "Explorer II" Stratosphere Balloon. This is a one page article about the technical aspects of flying the balloon into the stratosphere.
2. GW Times (George Washington University); Feb/Mar 1972, page 10-11. Entitled Melville Bell Grosvenor. It is an interview of Mr. Grosvenor and what, at age 70, he expects to accomplish in his present role with the "Geographic".
3. Publisher's Weekly; January 8, 1973, Volume 203 #2 pages 40-44. entitled The Phenomenal Success of the National geographic Book Operation. This discusses the growth of the boo service and also discusses the advantage of their non-profit status has over other publishers. There is also a discussion about how Mrs. Kennedy she developed the White House Historical Association after reading an article in the January, 1961 NGM.
