April1913.jpg (100780 bytes) April 1913 Issue

This is THE  issue on the very popular subject of the joint Yale University / National Geographic Society expedition to Machu Picchu, Peru.  It is a major # (almost double the pages of any other issue) and dedicated to the very exciting and major find in the high country of Peru.  While this author does not generally subscribe to placing extra emphasis on collecting (or the scarcity of)  individual issues based on subject, the impact and popularity of this issue cannot be ignored.  When runs of issues are found in storage (basments, attics, or lockers), this issues is a rare inclusion.  Either the issue was never gotten for the collection, or had since been removed by some interested party.  This issue is also enhanced by the inclusion of a major Pictorial Supplement. (see below and in Pictorials section) ..........Click on Pic to Enlarge  $475
