Since 1888, National Geographic has sparked the imaginations of millions of readers by bringing intriguing people, places, and animals to the world stage. Printed in 37 languages, and instantly recognizable by its yellow-bordered cover, the magazine is revered not only for the stories but for its world-class imagery, showcasing the talents of a bevy of intrepid photographers.

 In celebration of the magazine’s 125th anniversary, Christie's and National Geographic recently selected 125 rare and iconic pictures for an exclusive online auction. A selection of the proceeds will go toward preserving the archives from which these images were drawn.
