Random Treasure breaks new ground with personal memoirs from Roger Stewart depicting his stories of discovering remarkable objects and ‘treasures’ throughout his lifetime. After researching, collecting and selling antiques from early childhood, Roger describes his spectacular recent successes with uniquely exciting and profitable tales to tell.

As well as describing his own experiences as a collector, Roger investigates antique collecting from a behavioural and psychological viewpoint through light-hearted chapters with accessible language for all- making this a perfect read for prospective readers that are interested in popular science and psychology.

Roger’s background as living as a 68-year old Jewish Londoner in Scotland since 1967 influences elements of the book which relate to issues surrounding the Holocaust, and to a number of Jewish personalities.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    The author takes you from his beginnings in a pub in Central London to the small North Edinburgh salerooms on a journey which takes him to Burgundy and Paris (via Motherwell) in search of answers (and a small fortune).

    The book is delightfully written and gives an insight into the author’s thinking when searching for his treasures. He is not afraid to share his vulnerabilities and concerns with the reader, in a very down to earth style, which makes the book more engaging. I was especially taken by the autobiographical glimpses into what must have been a fascinating life.

    The tales of each of the treasures is hugely interesting and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened to them – and was surprised and delighted when I did find out.

    I am neither a collector nor interested in history yet I enjoyed this book for its gentle telling of the real life journey the treasures and the author have been on.
