Ran­dom Trea­sure: An­tiques, Auc­tions and Alchemy

Scottish Field - - BOOK REVIEWS -

BY ROGER STE­WART BOOK GUILD £12.99

In Ran­dom Trea­sure, Ed­in­burgh an­tiques collector Roger Ste­wart re­flects upon six decades of auc­tion suc­cess. An es­sen­tial read for any­one who wishes to go into this field, Ste­wart of­fers a tell-all on how he cap­i­talises on for­got­ten char­ity shop goods, turn­ing £1,500 worth of so-called junk into £250,000 worth of profit. The book also of­fers a serendip­i­tous side note of pop­u­lar psy­chol­ogy, di­vulging the in­tri­ca­cies faced by the com­pul­sive collector.
