When I retired
some years ago, little did I think my wife & I would spend 6 such totally
happy years in the Tropical Paradise of Nassau Bahamas, where we have made such
good sincere friends.
However, life, as they say, moves on, and with 1 delightful granddaughter
and grandson, after much soul searching, we have decided
we do need to move nearer our family.
I shall continue to keep the large array of archived informative Web Pages
listed here on-line, so please do feel free to browse them along with their ten
of thousands of scanned examples of antique maps, prints and illustrated books,
that I had the pleasure to deal in over some 30 years.
By way of a
retirement hobby, I shall be adding a small number of additional web references
hoping to keep in touch with the very many friends and customers it has
been my pleasure to meet over the years. I have greatly appreciate the mutual
trust that we built up together and take this opportunity to say a very sincere
'Thank You' to everyone.
