Proclamation and 13th Amendments acquired for the Lincoln Museum of Fort Wayne, Indiana, now on
display in the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. I am a member of the Board of Trustees of
the Manuscript Society, and a member of the ABAA. References are available upon request.

Museum Quality\Private Ownership
Most people know that markets exist for Impressionist paintings, fine English antiques, or rare coins.
However, the field of historic documents has long been quietly dominated by a select few: J.P. Morgan,
Henry Huntington, Malcolm Forbes. This is changing as more collectors discover the satisfaction of a
personal, unique connection with history.
Become associated with your favorite museum, library, university or historical society. Important
properties can be loaned for exhibition, placed on deposit or donated outright, to insure their survival
for generations to come. We can handle all the arrangements for you, including working with tax
attorneys and accountants, and coordinating insurance, transit, and proper acknowledgment.
