ENDORSEMENTS FROM WINTER ’24 Attendees:

 

“Collecting Insights has been invaluable to me at this stage of my collecting.  Spencer provides an unbiased and studied overview of options for the management of my collection which would not be feasible for me to get on my own.  The recommendations for preparing for the eventual disposition have been very helpful. I have benefited from his alerting me to resources available for me to utilize on my own as well.”

COLLECTING INSIGHTS: Legacy

Each session of Collecting Insights has been invaluable for me as an "expanding collector." Not only have I learned more about various aspects of the rare book trade, such as auctions and changing trends within the industry, but I have also been inspired to do so much more with my collection, like setting up a website. Ideas like these will surely come in handy as my collection grows and I look towards its future. I'm so grateful to have had the chance to learn from Spencer in these sessions.”
