BOOK: AN INTIMATE HISTORY OF COLLECTORS AND COLLECTING

Former ANA Librarian Nancy Green writes: "I thought E-Sylum
readers would like to know about an interesting book I have
been reading: "To Have and to Hold: An Intimate History of
Collectors and Collecting", by Philipp Blom.

There is not much mention of numismatic collections but his
discussion of the history and philosophy of collecting is
fascinating. The book was published in 2002. The philosophy
and psychology of collecting anything is one of my special
interests. One is either a collector or not. There are degrees
of obsession but the basic tendency is like a switch, either
on or off.

Thanks for all your excellent work in keeping us bibliophiles
connected and providing a meeting place for discussions."
