The Mineralogical Record Magazine Back Issues For Sale


We have hundreds of back issues of the popular magazine, The Mineralogical Record.     

The Mineralogical Record magazine is issued six times a year and has been in print since 1970. This is the most authoritative and widely respected mineral collector's journal in the world; no serious advanced collector would be without it.  This periodical covers important mineral localities old and new, elaborates on the fascinating history of mining and mineralogy, and describes new mineral species. They see reviews of public and private collections, market reports from contemporary mineral shows, columns on special topics, and oversized special issues devoted to entire mineral-rich states and countries. And all of these articles and features are illustrated by abundant top-quality color photography of fine mineral specimens.  Copies of the magazine are never discarded like old newspapers, but are carefully saved and collected as reference works of permanent value.  The photography alone makes this journal worth viewing religiously.

This is an expensive periodical ranging from $15 (USD, newsstand price) to more for special issues.  Back issues are available on their web site at this link and the cover can be seen there, too.  Our issues (marked with an "X" for each available copy) are in excellent to new condition and priced accordingly.  We do not sell poor quality issues.  New issues still in original wrappers are marked with a red X

All copies sold here are $10 each, unless marked otherwise.
