2016 marks 57 years since I issued my first catalog of presidential autographs, and I have written this website to provide as much information as possible about who we are, what we do, and what we offer in a no-nonsense, verifiable way. Collecting historical documents and autographs, letters and historical manuscripts is the most intimate window into the personalities, time periods, and subjects that you are interested in. A personal view and sense of intimacy that historical letters and documents bring to the past is the best investment you can make in the future — an investment in understanding history and therefore the future.
