    Good perspective on priorities in the face of personal disaster.

    Good perspective from a collectors point of view, however I would have thought from an insurance perspective with most books apparently hosed into a soup, photographic evidence would have been right at the top. Not necessarily to show complete strangers. But when a catastrophe occurs like this you can rest assured your insurance assessor will not be a stranger for very long.

    I am sure an insurance inspector would have been on site to inspect it, and taken their own pictures. I am sure they would like to see any pictures he had of the inventory pre-flood if he has them.

    Positive Rep, Jack! I'll admit I haven't been following this thread very closely, but I do wonder why such value items would be stored in the basement. That being said, my "library is in the basement but all books are well above the waterline should there ever be a disaster. My greatest fear is fire.

    Absolutely agree. Getting a list of damages and photos for insurance would absolutely be a priority. But posting those photos online to allay suspicious minds would not be much of one, for me personally.

    Thanks for the rep! I think I read in one of the early accounts of the disaster that Gerald had moved the items into the basement temporarily while he was reorganizing stock in his store. He planned to move them back upstairs to display in the store.

    Good for the charity, but baffling that the work we have done here for the past 10+ years doesn't receive near the same publicity.

    I appreciate it is a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, and the charity aspect adds another layer of randomness into the pot, but any thoughts on the price range expected on the manuscripts?

    I have absolutely no idea of values. I hope that they do sell, and that they do get some serious money for helping the cause.

    At the moment, there are some manuscripts available, not signed though, on ebay, sold by Mike Pasuik

    I donít find the auction to have that many unique or interesting items....and the legal waiver is significant.
