Susan’s Tasmanian Books – 40 years of collecting
My love of Tasmania and Tasmanian history led me to scouring book shops and auction houses for books on Tasmania. For over 40 years I have had the pleasure of collecting Tasmaniana. Once the books were in my hands, I then had the joy of delving, digging, dipping and diving into the book to learn more about this wonderful state. My collection has been a wonderful companion. The time has now come for me to sell my collection, with the help of my sister (an experienced ebayer), who will be posting the books for me from Melbourne. I hope that the dispersal of my collection will give other collectors the opportunity of owning some of the books that have given me so much pleasure.
