The first Dime novels arrive

October 23, 2006

The first of the “Joseph J. Myler Collection of Dime Novels” have arrived via Fed-Ex. The donor is going through them and using E-bay to determine value for tax purposes, to avoid having them appraised. His accountant told him he can donate $5000/year without an appraisal so he said he’d “send $5000/year until we are both dead.” 🙂 He also said he thinks he has alot more than 900!
They are stapled into file folders that are not acid free. All the folders are nicely labeled. I think we will remove the staples and put them in acid free folders. I’m not sure the best way to preserve the labels. (As always, I’m open to suggestions.)

This first batch are from the Beadle Half Dime Library. I’ll organize them by Vol. and No.
