In 1984 a man approached Jerry Weist, owner of "The Million Year Picnic" comic shop in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with a small sampling of comics from his collection. This initial meeting was the hobby's introduction to what is now referred to as the White Mountain Collection. Few collections of Silver Age books approach the consistently high level of condition and page quality that White Mountain copies possess. Weist would eventually become the organizer for Sotheby's comic book and comic art auctions. In that capacity, he introduced the collecting world to this fabulous discovery, offering choice samplings in Sotheby's 1991, 1993 and 1996 auctions. Many collectors are still not aware that the collection's large body of Silver Age publications also included a small sampling of choice, early Underground Comix. It should also be said that most collectors have yet to grasp the significance of that inclusion. For most Silver Age collectors, the UG's are the forgotten books of the period, and this is a serious omission on their part. AND EVEN FEWER KNOW AB0UT HIS COLLECTION OF SCIENCE FICTION BOOKS, H.P LOVECRAFT ITEMS (he published a zine called Lovecraftian Ramblings in the 80's), MAPS, TRAVEL BROCHURES, TV GUIDES, CAR MANUALS, MAGAZINES, ART, ETC. also in amazing, mostly unread mint condition.
