Manuscript Monday – The Life Cycle of Collections

Monday, May 2, 2022 – 8:00 PM Eastern

In this third Manuscript Monday, join Collections Advisor, Spencer W. Stuart, as he discusses the life cycle of collections and the collectors who build them.

Moderated by Manuscript Monday host, Brian Kathenes, Spencer will share case studies and cover:

  • The important things collectors should consider at key moments of their collecting.
  • Motivations to collect
  • Who collects and what influences their focus
  • Maintaining perspective while actively collecting
  • The legacy of a collection and de-accessioning strategies
  • Recent structural changes in the fine art photography, rare books and printed material markets


Collecting is a journey. Executed with foresight, it can be a source of both self-exploration and understanding of the World.

Spencer’s presentation is designed to inspire new collectors and reinvigorate those with an established focus.
