National Geographics Are Hard To Scan

November 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

As mentioned earlier, I recently came into possession of 28 vintage National Geographic magazines from 1913 to 1925. For those of you who are familiar with the magazine's format, you will understand that it is nearly impossible to scan the inner pages since the magazine is so compact and tightly bound. The only way to reliably scan a page would be to tear it out or dismantle the binding, which is difficult for me to consider doing to a collectible magazine.

Luckily, however, I recently realized that amongst the 28 National Geographics in my current collection, I have one duplicate issue (June, 1916). One is in very good condition, and the other is a bit more scuffed up and worn. So I have made the decision to dismantle the lower quality duplicate to make scanning of the inner pages much easier on me. It is chock full of amazing ads and pictures, so stay tuned for some great ads from 1916!
