Bev Miller, in Bellevue WA, USA has been in touch with me to see if any SRGC Member is interested in collecting some/all of the collection of books on gardening and plants and SRGC journals she has had for some years, after clearing a house. I have posted this message in the SRGC Forum, but it seemed to me that NARGS members might also be interested and Bev has given me her permission to post this here, too.
Bev writes :
"I rescued as many as I could carry and store. Now in my retirement, I am just going through the books and would love to find the a good home.
The first bag I emptied has The Journal of the Scottish Rock Garden Club. This book on top is Is Nov. 25, 1959. I may have 50 or so of this small blue book. Do you have or know of anyone who may collect these treasures"
As I am just starting to look at what I have, I realized the books are all old and have complete series. The books are really old.
I have organized a bit more and the oldest Scottish Rock Garden is 1932 with all volumes until 1989.
Please give my email to anyone you think may have interest. I am not racing out the door to donate them to Goodwill. Many of these books "feel" special" and are old.
Some are signed and at least one is a numbered edition.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I will be happy to pass Bev's email to anyone who is interested in collecting these books or journals from Bev in Bellevue, Washington State, USA.
