The Richard D. Miggins Collection of the Philippines is undoubtedly one of the finest ever assembled for this country. Whereas many collections specialize in merely one era of the Philippines’s history, Mr. Miggins was able to acquire many key items from the Spanish, American, and Japanese administrations. It is our hope that the catalogue of his collection will be an important resource for generations of collectors to come.
