It is so sad, and I know I am not alone in missing Michael. He was a truly brilliant researcher, collector, photographer and above all, friend.
He deeply loved his collection, and I think we all shared the dream that it would be kept intact. It surpassed the holdings of so many museums as did his knowledge.
My hope is that his name will remain with these items as they are sold, and that those who acquire them will keep his name in their description in tribute to one of the great arms historians of out time.
Does anybody know if his collection was ever catalogued in entirety? It deserves to be published if so.
