The Hagen-Renaker Collectors' Catalog was originally published by Cheryl Abelson in 1980. It was the first text ever to attempt to fully describe H-R's then thirty-year-old line.
Since so much in that text is still relevant today, I sought and received Cheryl's kind permission to republish it here. We are grateful to Susan Renaker Nikas for assenting to its publication. No reproduction of the material here is permitted.
Each page of the text and images will be reproduced here, over time. Please note that the material in blue has been added by me to enhance the readability of the text in the context of the web.
