Introduction by Jean-Claude ALBA concerning mineralogy:
By entering the universe of fossils, minerals and prehistoric art, the traveller does not discover a new world, but he accesses a new marvellous domain to which a man like Mr. André HERVE gives him the key.
Passionate all his life, Mr. André HERVE has collected with passion and love. He inventoried them, classified them with precision and gathered them in a small private museum installed in the region today dispersed.
A detailed repertory composed essentially in the 1970s mentions the precise geographical origins and the dates of inventory. It is a work of long halt that Mr. André HERVE presents to us on his notebook of road or voyage.
Each purchaser, if he wishes it, will be able to have an extract of the handwritten repertory of the objects which it will buy.
Today, for their greatest happiness, this dispersion gives the opportunity to young and new collectors to discover these pieces preserved with passion.
