As a playing card collector I would like to acknowledge the following people. Sylvia Mann: John Berry: Ken Lodge: Robert Welsh: Michael Goodall. Between them they taught me everything I didn't know.
Hello and welcome. I have been collecting playing cards since 1979 and in the early years was fortunate enough to live close to Sylvia Mann and Adrienne Gurr, no better people to learn from I am sure you will agree. In 1990 due to business problems I had to sell my then collection at Sothebys. It was a much larger and more diverse collection than I show here and it was nice to see the Fournier Museum ending up with many of them. This is my second coming if you like, not a patch on that first collection but I hope you find it interesting.
If you see something that really interests you under my collection I might be persuaded to sell it but it would have to be an interesting offer. Thank you for looking.
