Recollector was originally developed by programmer and vintage map collector Jeremy Pool in 2002. “I first created Recollector to manage my own collection of vintage maps,” comments Pool. “Once I started using it, I saw immediately how useful this could be as a resource in all fields of collecting. From there, it was a matter of expanding the program, developing greater customization, and making it available on multiple platforms. Now, whether you collect maps, toys, movies, photographs, books or anything else, Recollector will help you track those items on your PC, Mac
