Topic - A Crying Shame - huge book collection up for auction

Phil Kelly - on 11 Feb 2013
Hi

I was just noticed that the vast collection of climbing, mountaineering, skiing and travel books and other items from Geoff Milburn's personal library are finally going to go under the hammer in April.

This really is a crying shame; there's no other collection like this probably in the world. Whichever room you went into in Geoff's house, he'd open a drawer or look into a cupboard and it would be crammed with books, photographs, postcards.

Really the collection should have been snapped up by the BMC as a heritage collection, rather than spending ridiculous amounts of money on bolts (IMHO).

Phil
