An established source for all things cultural, historical and political, National Geographic continued to inform readers throughout the “Roaring ‘20s” with in-depth text and spectacular on-site photography of faraway and domestic places of which Americans only dreamed. This complete run spans (120) issues from 1920 through 1929 and includes leather-bound holders (with incorrect dates). While covers/pages are intact on most, conditions vary with flaws on a few. Because of the weight of this lot, a shipping surcharge will apply. More on our website.
