Subscribers of National Geographic have anticipated each issue almost from its first publication in 1888. Known for their reporting of important news, discoveries of the world and beyond, scattered with feature stories from exotic locations and unquestionably top of the line photographs, readers treasured them and saved them. Stacked them in piles on the bookcase. Tied them in bundles. They were true encyclopedias of history in action. Eventually they were moved to the attic, where this batch of nearly five years of magazines was recently discovered. Offered here is a set of eight 1966 issues. Included photos show all of the front covers and a few inside pages. Just a few of the articles to be enjoyed: Presidential Profiles (FDR to LBJ), news from Viet Nam, St. Augustine (Fla.) 400 years old; the Norman Conquest, Jefferson’s Monticello, the Himalayas, and the first color photos from the moon’s rocky face. One issue includes a supplemental map of California. Missing issues are April, June, July and November.
