Tracking African Americana
FEBRUARY 13, 2006 | Business Week Online | By Thane Peterson.
So bone up before you buy. Reading the Swann sale catalog and
attending the annual Black Memorabilia & Collectible Show and Sale
in Gaithersburg, Md., on Mar. 25 are good ways to learn. Catalogs from
rare book dealers, such as William Reese in New Haven, McBlain Books in
Hamden, Conn., and Between the Covers Rare Books in Merchantville, N.J.,
are also helpful resources. Good primers on the subject include The Art
and History of Black Memorabilia by Larry Buster and Collecting African
American History by Elvin Montgomery.
