"The Art of Collecting National Heritage: the Letters of Henry Luke White 1910-1913" compiled by Judy White (2007), hardbound with dustjacket, inscribed "Published as a limited edition of 300 copies, of which this is number 250" and signed "Judy White". One of the most enlightening books ever on the psyche of the collector. [HL White's fabulous stamp collection reposes in Sydney's Mitchell Library. His legendary collections of birds eggs & skins are housed in the Museum of Victoria. The disperal of his library of Australiana titles caused a sensation. For Gary Watson's in-depth review of this important book, please visit our website or request a copy of the review by fax or mail]
