This is a little like the issue of showing proper respect to Don Maslin's
wife. Build a friendship first, then pursue your interests second.
Might I suggest 1./ Identify a person most like yourself. 2./ Find your
best book on the period in your collection. 3./ Loan it to this person.
4./ Wait 1 to 2 months. 5./ Converse on the subject.
There's 5 steps, there could be more... then make your request.
