Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies - 2009

The 2009 edition of the Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies is close to publication. All of the articles have been submitted and reviewed and I have sent the master document file to the printer. Several copies have been ordered for a final review. The Journal will be ready for online ordering in early March. The Journal continues to grow in prominence and stature and is quickly becoming the publication of record for the personal property industry. The 2008 edition was endorsed by Wendell Garrett of Antiques magazine and was positively reviewed by Maine Antique Digest (click HERE to read the review).

The 2009 edition of the Journal has content which is wide and diverse with articles ranging from American Indian Basketry to Furniture by 20th Century decorators to art indexes, forensic analysis and appraisal methodologies. The 2009 edition contains 20 articles with nearly 350 pages of content on personal property appraising.

The Journal is published by the Foundation for Appraisal Education, a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization where the proceeds of the Journal are returned to the community through educational initiatives and scholarships.

I am going to occasionally post some excerpts from the Journal to the blog, so look for them in the near future.
