The Private Collector's Museum

Walker, Georgina S. The Private Collector's Museum: Public Good Versus Private Gain. Routledge, 2019.

The Private Collector's Museum connects the rising popularity of private museums with evolving models of collecting and philanthropy, and new inter-relationships between private and public space.
