Since 1888, National Geographic magazine has brought the people and places of our immense planet into the homes – and imaginations – of millions of readers. Printed in 37 languages, and instantly recognizable by the yellow-bordered cover, the magazine is revered for its world-class imagery, showcasing the talents of its intrepid photographers.

In an exclusive, online-only sale (July 19-29), Christie’s and National Geographic have selected 125 iconic pictures in celebration of National Geographic’s 125th anniversary. A selection of the proceeds will go toward preserving the archives from which these images were drawn. The sale will include extremely rare prints and other photographs never before offered at auction.

Boundless: 125 Years of National Geographic Photography is a limited online-only auction of vintage and contemporary photography, presented by Christie’s, celebrating the legacy of National Geographic Society during its 125th anniversary year. The public can register bids at www.christies.com/natgeo from July 19-29.
