Sold out
Fireside, 1980. Softcover. 128 pages. 22 x 28 cm. Text in English. Used. VG. This amazing book collects collectors. A great many collectors have a strong sense of and deep interest in history, some almost living in the past through their collections. The collection often serves as a vehicle for historical research via the path of its particular subject. Most collectors enjoy living with their collections all around them, usually on displays in their homes, often in the more personal inner rooms.  Many collectors will tell you that their collecting activities began when they saw a particular item one day really struck them in a special way. They simply had to have it, though few could tell you just why. Collecting means be relate to the world in a special way!
