1905-1913 National Geographic Magazine Bound Book Lot Machu Picchu Peru Discover
Scarce Collection of the First Nat Geo Mags to have Photographs
Collection of rare antique National Geographic hardcover books.
Thirteen books total. They contain every National Geographic Magazine from 1907-1913 and a half years worth from 1905 and 1906.
The three green bound books are full years for 1907, 1908 and 1909.
National Geographic was a text-based scientific journal about geography until 1905, when the magazine published a photo essay on Tibet. So these are the oldest issues of National Geographic that contain photos.
I have read and been told that there were only 200 of this set printed but I am not certain.
The brown binding is unusual; it may even be a unique or much smaller private run.
Very rare to have this many National Geographic books this old together.
Each book is full of 150-280 high quality photos, illustrations and maps with accompanying text.
The 1913 Machu Picchu Peru discovery issue book sells for $200 or more alone.
Look into this one and you will see the replacement value of this set is enormous.
