    Classic case of 'one man's treasure' is 'just another man's junk'. If you want to leave your treasured items to relatives in your will, make sure that they appreciate and want your esoteric collection. Sadly; vast old libraries rarely contain really valuable jems - as a book collector for over fifty years, I have been asked to catalogue a fair number of collections over the years, prior to auction. In only five cases were the complete collections sold, the rest were picked around and the vast majority of the books left on the shelves to be vandalised - as we so often and sadly see in our explores.

    Standard practice in the book trade I'm afraid, serious book collectors are often catholic in their tastes and have piles of working copies of books that interest them, as well as firsts in fine condition. Dealers will pick through the shelves to select books that will sell, and leave the rest behind. The dealer mentality is very different to the collector mentality…
