Rare, Old or Offbeat

A group for those cursed with collector manias of all kinds. Welcome to folks who just have to buy every scrap written by obscure symbolist poets, every cheesy gothic romance with great cover art, every first edition from a minor press in the 1930s, or every dusty and twisted old vellum.
