Description

Simultaneously an educational library and passport to all parts of the globe, this 1951-2011 near-complete run of National Geographic editions includes handsome storage binders to facilitate easy access of year-by-year volumes. This sizable assortment includes (6) duplicate issues and is missing only (6) for an uninterrupted run (Feb. 1959; Feb., Dec. 2007; Jan., May, Dec. 2011). Among the bound volumes, there are two binders per year (with the exception of 1955, which has all 12 issues in a single binder). Approximately 15% are not bound and hail from libraries. Covers, pages and map inserts are intact on the vast majority, with (EX) presentation prevalent. Among the many highlights are July 1959 (Alaska, 49th State); June 1962 (Glennís three orbits); December 1969 (Moon explorer). Due to the weight of this lot, a shipping surcharge will apply.
