One of the most influential mineral collectors of our time, William W. Pinch brought leadership, context, and connoisseurship to the intellectually elite craft of species collecting. His first collection set lasting standards for the genre before selling in 1989 to the Canadian Museum of Nature for a record-setting 3.5 million US dollars. That collection and the enigmatic Pinch are the subject of this highly anticipated volume, superbly narrated and illustrated by photographer and storyteller Michael Bainbridge, who spent hundreds of hours working with the collection and interviewing Pinch, his family, friends, and contemporaries.
