Gathered in the HHS reading rooms, four SAA-sc members sat anxiously around several cardboard boxes belonging to the Plews Collection. Donated by the esteemed lawyer, the contents of the Plews Collection boxes were unknown; we were to open, inventory, and assess the books we found. Like an early christmas gift, we dove in ripping off yellowing tape and wiping down plumes of dust. The rest of the day was spent logging book metadata, noting the quality of each item and searching for book prices. The hospitality of the HHS surprised us once again. We were greeted with smiles and left with full stomachs and books. Thank you HHS for this great opportunity.
