Collecting Manuscripts: A Practical Introduction

Care for old books, manuscripts, photos and papers

Books, Manuscripts, AutographsCaring for manuscripts is not labor-intensive. Keep paper away from excess light, heat, and moisture. Invest in archival storage materials. And should an item need restoration, seek the advice of a professional restorer recommended by or associated with a reputable museum.

The manuscript community is small, but growing. The field offers a unique way to make history come alive for the collector. And because the market is so diverse, a collector can participate at his or her financial level, trading up for more expensive, desirable pieces as he or she is able. I recommend it to any collector interested in scholarly pursuits.
