Not books for sure. Only so much space on shelves so I take a bag full of non keepers to church for bookstall when piles here begin to topple. Not a deliberate collection at first bu t I accumalated some SNU and other spiritualist enamel badges. Committee etc. Word got out then people began to give them to me and now it is a collection. Keep meaning to mount them on frame board They are very colourful and some are over fifty years old. Best one is a hallmarked silver presidents medal. That's on watchchain.

Huge collection here Jim, but we buy selectively and occasionally not at all because of teh cost of book plus shipping. However we also have roughly 3,000 Spiritualist ebooks including key rareities plus a huge collection of pre 1900 e spiritualist magazines.

Its why it takes us so long to write articles we like to track and obtain every reference book or magazine but its not always possible sadly.

The magazines are e-mags also?

It's great that they are being preserved in e-format! I wonder how many copies of these magazines survive, in paper format? Someone really shoud re-print them, since the copyrights have expired.

There's a company in the US called Cornell Publications, whose specialty is reprining old gun catalogs. It must be worth their while to do so, since they've been in business at least for severall years.

I'll bet there'd be a similar market among Spiritualists. Very Happy
