The author H. W. Shutler has always been an avid collector of vintage items that range from classic cars to noteworthy historical objects. This passion has in many ways shaped his life which is why he has endeavored to write “An Inherent Obsession for Collecting” (published by AuthorHouse UK), a book that is both a family memoir and a catalog of the objects Shutler has collected.

This engrossing read shows the author’s many years of being a collector and also captures his great passion for this hobby. Shutler includes his family’s history as a way of showing his fascination with old vehicles, motorcycles and much more. The author’s adventures in this book take readers to various countries and are somewhat reminiscent of the History Channel show “American Pickers,” as Shutler searches for interesting items for his collection.

An excerpt from “An Inherent Obsession for Collecting”:

“In 1949, I purchased my first motor cycle, which was a dollied-up 1939 war model “Royal Enfield” 350cc (OHV) all repainted, with a chrome tank, etc. I had driven motor cars on sand roads on my uncle’s farm, but had never ridden a motor cycle in my life.”
