"If you really want to make a sale on the individual issues - I'd offer them for $5 to $10 each with a bundled price no greater than $20. For reference, a 1920's issue in Very Good Condition: Bindings may have cracks, but all material is…"

Vol 1-8 1888-1896 Reprints

I am researching the value of these bound reprints of NG - Vol 1-8 years 1888-1896. They are bound in what I would call traditional library monograph/serial binding. As a retired librarian, they appear to be in pristine condition. From what I've read on this site, I believe they are possibly reprints from the 1960s, but I'm just not sure. I would appreciate guidance regarding a fair price.I also have several individual issues in less than pristine condition that I would also like a value…See More

Why do you wish to join this community?
I volunteer with Friends of the Blue Ridge Library to determine value of old books. We get lots of donations for our twice yearly sale. We've been gifted a set of bound National Geographics: vol 1-8, 1888-1896 plus a few unbound single issues from the 1920s. I was astonished to discover they may be worth a fair amount of money. I want to find out if they are legit old since they are in pristine condition. I want to price them fairly - all profits go to support the Blue Ridge Library and programs.
About Me:
I'm a retired librarian. Have always loved National Geographic. My husband and I had at one time a full collection of the cd version. We both agree if we were younger we'd keep these early editions but we're trying to downsize!
Favorite travel destination:
We were Peace Corps volunteers in Burkina Faso (Haute Volta when we were there). We both have traveled for our jobs, and for vacations. Last great adventure was China about 25 years ago.
