THE BIBLIOGRAPHY PROCESS  

    Larry Mitchell, compiler of the NBS General Numismatic 
    Bibliography, writes:  

    Your bibliographer would like to thank Tom Fort for offering 
    some excellent suggestions apropos to our sections on Dark 
    Ages and Anglo-Saxon Coinages (several of Tom's suggested 
    titles will shortly be incorporated into these sections as an 
    update).  

    Suggestions as to additions/updates/corrections are ALWAYS 
    welcome from EVERYONE (don't let the fact that you may be 
    a "newbie" to our hobby make you shy!).  I can't guarantee that 
    your suggestion(s) will make my "final cut", but I will guarantee 
    that ALL suggestions will be seriously reviewed for possible 
    inclusion. (I usually consider hundreds of titles for each section, 
    then pare the final selection down to no more than a dozen titles 
    [so as not to overwhelm folks new to the hobby] ).  

    Your updates/additions/corrections should be addressed to 
    either myself  directly (ldmitchell@qnet.com) or to Wayne 
    (whomren@coinlibrary.com), who will in turn direct them to 
    me.  

    Keep in mind that our audience is predominantly English- 
    speaking, so titles in the English language are what we're 
    focused on.  

    Where am I headed next?  Well, my roadmap, in a very rough 
    way (there having been to date numerous digressions, shortcuts, 
    wrong turns, etc.,  along the way), is Clain-Stefanelli's excellent 
    NUMISMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHY.  Of course, much has been 
    published in the 15 years since this wonderful work came out, 
    so the opportunities to make helpful suggestions are numerous. 
    (Published titles on Celtic coinage, for example, didn't really 
    "explode" till after Van Arsdell reinvigorated this specialty with 
    his now-standard-reference CELTIC COINAGE OF BRITAIN 
    in 1989.)  So, turn to C/S page 523 and pray that I don't start 
    heading the wrong way down a one-way street....     :-)
