ROBERT E. HECHT AND HESPERIA ART

Regarding Robert E. Hecht and price lists from Hesperia Art,
R. Craig Kammerer of Basking Ridge, NJ writes: "Kerry Wetterstrom
is correct about Bob Hecht. Bob supplied Hesperia Art with coins
& antiquities in the 1960ís which were marketed thru a William
H. Allen Bookseller, Walnut Street in Philadelphia, as I have
some of his lists and actually have visited there many years
ago, with the proprietorís name of a George Allen. They also
had fabulous classical books and often, some collection for
sale. George kept want lists on 3 x 5 ď index cards and would
send you a post card when a wanted item came into stock.

"I have not tried to find the store in many years, though it
looks like George Allen died in 1997, as there is a book
entitled the History of William H. Allen Booksellers by George
Allen, 1917-1997.

"Sometime about 1985, I did ask George about whether he would
publish any more Hecht lists, but his answer was definitely no."
