Omg, Today I find out he died on the day I first heard of him. I discovered Jan by acquiring vol 2-4 of his books the literal day he died, October 24th. I have it in my texting history from the person I was talking to about 'coming to look at the books' that day. Really makes me stop and think about existence and the timing of everything.
Jan was a giant in the field of collecting and his outstanding books sit as treasured resources on many of our bookshelves. We are fortunate as collectors to have had him and the impact he has had on our field of collecting. Rest in Peace!
