I spent the weekend reviewing the images in this book. What a treat it was. It's not just another collection of the same images we have come to see again and again.
The book delves deep into to the archives of the National Geographic society to find images that represent all aspects of their collection. What a great variety of images, photographers and styles, all held together and presented in this beautiful book.
It's hard to say what I liked best, there is just so much to choose from, Old B&W, autochrome plates and both 35 mm and digital photography. Such beautiful Images -and not the ones that are published over and over. they took me into what it must be like to work there, behind the scenes.

If you know anyone who loves photography this is the gift to buy them this holiday season

This book contains such a broad range of photographs from all over the world. Each page is a reminder of the incredible richness of the human and natural world. I do not know much about photography, but it's amazing to see how both the quality and the style of photographs has evolved over the past century. This is a truly enduring book that I will enjoy for years to come.

Some of the most exceptional National Geographic photos are found in this book. But the quality of paper used to reproduce this book disappointed me. I would be willing to pay more for a better quality paper to highlight these photographic masterpieces.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for a colleague and couldn't be more delighted. In fact, I enjoyed browsing its pages before I wrapped it so much, I'm going to order a copy for my own bookshelves. It's definitely a keeper!

Bought this book as a gift for a friend. I was able to flip through it briefly before giving it away, and the images were spectacular. My friend has commented to me many times that he really enjoys his new book, and flips through it quite a bit to read interesting things. It is a very large book, and seems perfect to be a very nice "coffee table" book after you are done reading it cover to cover.

I bought this as a Christmas gift and my boyfriend loved it. This book doesn't have to be just for photographers but for those who appreciate the art. I looked through it myself and I was especially taken with the animal shots they were magnificent. You will be astounded at what can be captured in a four corner shot.

This book is a joy to peruse in those odd moments of time. Many of the photographs are truly stunning, and many make one pause in thought. I hope National Geographic puts together more collections like this!

This book offers a great number of pictures. However, I was not very impressed by them. I didn't find a lot of outstanding pictures as one would expect from National Geographic.

National Geographic Image Collection

I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the 450 photographs in this outstanding book. Some I have seen before but others were new. It must have been very difficult to cull from the eleven million images in the National Geographic's Image Collection. The fact that the Collection is so large speaks well of the dedication of the Geographic’s group to preserve these treasures.

I especially liked how the book’s categories was divided into four sections; The Early Photographs, Color & Optimism, Documentary Realism, and The Digital Range. You could follow the progression of the art form very easily.

One of the reasons, I have always had an interest in photography can be traced to my childhood memories of reading The National Geographic magazine.

While it is interesting that the book was printed in Italy; the questions arises “Why can we not print books like this in USA?

This book should be purchased for all our libraries in the country.

I was encouraged to purchased this book because of the rave reviews. I'm beginning to question if these reviews are real ?

The book is printed in China on cheap paper and the images in many photos are blurred.
I'm extremely disappointed in this book and will return it tomorrow.
The price is inexpensive and it shows that you get what you pay for.
