The time comes for all collectors to pass on, however reluctant their owners and in spite of the care taken in their assembly.
It is an uncomfortable topic and very understandable that anyone would feel resistant to discuss the subject. The unfortunate truth is that, if we as collectors do not grasp the problem, ultimately others will have to do it for us.
This booklet gives guidance on the different ways of reducing and disposing of a collection with each of their traps and advantages. While it is produced with writing equipment in mind, much of the information is relevant for owners of other collectibles.
It is directed to us as collectors but, if we do not take heed, then it will be equally useful for those we leave to carry out the task for us.
