Talked to Dad this morning. He was about to head to the St. Michael Farmers Market, then settle down to the British Open, Jordan Spieth in the front. Dave and Susan should be en route to Santa Fe and Helen and Will tot Bossier City.
So I have my nose in the computer as usual. Found out a lot about J.D. Then found the Presbyterian Historical Society—I emailed them to see if they were interested in any of the Egypt pics, polyglot Bible, etc. For a Presbyterian, he was pretty interesting.
Also found where the Hilda Holme collection is—I could never remember the name of the college she gave it to. http://collections.digitalmaryland.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/schh
Interesting. Maybe they want some more. ;-)
I'm going to talk to Ken Sanders about looking at some of the prints, etc. He's one of the most qualified people in the country for this and an acquaintance. Maybe he can give us a lead on someone closer to where they are.
Also, a first edition of Sapphira and the Slave Girl in a dust jacket sells for between $50 and $200 on collectors' book sites. So, thanks Helen.
We probably should set up an ebay business. Right.
