How to Collect by Carole G. Rogers - Book
Why collect? To anyone who is already addicted the question might more appropriately be asked: Why not collect? Pastime becomes passion so quickly that our enthusiasm obscures our perspective. We are not the first-or even the hundredth-generation of collectors. "The urge to collect is as old as man himself," Aline Saarinen reminds us in The Proud Possessors.
This compact book masterfully sums up all the whys and wherefores of being a successful collector, for it covers in great detail all the points you must be aware of once you find yourself on the road of no return. Major topics in this guide are: "Learning All
You Can" (including lists of mail-order booksellers, periodicals, price guides, auction catalogues); "How-and Where-to Buy" (including dealing with dealers, mastering the basics of auctions, flea markets, tag and garage sales); "Displaying and Preserving"; "Protecting Your Collection " (including record keeping, appraisals, insurance); and "Disposing of a Collection" (including selling through an auction, at a flea market or tag sale).
In short, this little book is brimful of all kinds of helpful information about a topic of consuming interest to thousands of people today. Read it and see!
