About

I am a collector and seller of historical paper, books and photographs. History has always been my favorite pastime since I was a kid. Visits to places like Antietam and other historical sites played a vital role in developing my love of history and has carried over into adulthood. The wonderful thrill of holding something old in ones hands has always drove me collect, which has led to me into selling, in order to collect more, and thus a cycle was created. So yes I am a seller, but was first and still am a collector. With me however I have always found handwritten letters, documents and papers the most interesting. They are unique to one person, one place, and at one time. I hope you will enjoy my site and thank you for visiting, Ian Jones (thehistoryseller).
