Time to reduce this collection

Now that I'm in my 70s, I feel that it is time to make sure that I don't leave such a huge collection behind me - it wouldn't be fair to those around me, particularly when they don't quite share the passion and the history/knowledge.

So, I've decided that almost anything in the collection is available for sale. Some items in the collection are "one-off" and consequently they are very rare. Some things are better kept together as a set.
