This book chronicles the evolution of the Manuscript Society, a fifty-year-old organization of collectors and archivists, in the context of autograph collecting in general. The author presents a comprehensive account of the growing problems posed by forgers and discusses the notorious Salt Lake City bomber, undoubtedly one of the most skillful forgers of this century. From the dilemma faced by archivists when papers are threatened with destruction to some of the Society's most memorable meetings, this work tells a story that will interest generations to come.
