This blog has been a long time in the making. For quite some time, I’ve hoped to share with my relatives and the world the library of my great-grandfather, James Watson Reid Collins.
By chance I came across several mentions of his library on the web and in a few books I found courtesy of Google books. I also wondered if a catalog had ever been issued and if could I ever locate a copy. Well several years ago I did, and I promptly made a phone call to a book seller in San Francisco. After inquiring about the availability and cost-he asked what my interest was. I mentioned that I was JWR Collins’s great-grandson. He seemed quite happy that he could reunite me with a piece of family history.
