Advice regarding who would be interested in my collection of NG Magazines

My late husband who passed away four months ago was an avid reader and collector of this magnificent magazine. I have from July 1986 to February 2020 all in mint condition. Also these have been carefully catalogued and saved into USB . I live in

  Melbourne Australia. Thank you.

Hello Maria,

I live in western Vic and have just seen your notice.  I send my condolences for the loss of your husband - a very sad time in the midst of all our closures and lock ups - I hope that you have good people around you who are looking after you.  I was following a notice up from the US when I saw your note.  I have a back set of NGs that I am building - been at it for years - I have a fairly complete run from late 1940s to the present, so I can’t take you up on your offer.  Apparently there is not much of a market, but I love diving back into them all the time - they are the history of our times.  I hope that you find someone who wants them and will use and treasure them. And I hope that you will be ok. When my Dad died, I thought that my Mum would just shut down.  But we just learned to remember and laugh - lots - about all the good times and good things.  Years after, my Mum is nearly 90 and life goes on, but we haven’t forgotten.  Do it at your pace and you’ll be ok.  With best wishes, Peter O’Rourke
