The official journal of the National Geographic Society, National Geographic magazine runs the gamut in terms of worldwide culture and history. This uninterrupted run spans (252) monthly issues from January 1930 through December 1950. An ideal reference compilation for the historian or publications buff, the periodical run is comprised of examples whose conditions vary. The issues pre-date cover photography (though there are many alluring photographs on the pages within). Issued by the publication, sturdy leather-bound cases hold mini-runs of four, five or six apiece (dates stamped on spines do not match), with content detailing the exotic and remote from all portions of the globe. Note: due to the weight of this lot, a shipping surcharge will apply. More on our website.
