JOHN W. ADAMS COIN WORLD COMMENTARY  

   The June 21st issue of Coin World features a guest editorial 
   by John W. Adams of Boston in response to the AJN article 
   by Buttrey regarding Western Gold Assay Bars.  

   "Given that my book, United States Numismatic Literature 
   Volume II, was quoted extensively by Mr. Buttrey, I possess 
   some credentials to judge his work.  I am flattered whenever 
   my book is employed in shaping numismatic research -- that 
   was the whole point in writing it.  However, in researching 
   his monograph, Mr. Buttrey used only one chapter of my 
   book, whereas there were many chapters in Volume II (and 
   Volume I) that would have pointed to relevant bibliography.  

   ... it is clear that Mr. Buttrey's work is woefully incomplete. 
   To have arrived at grave conclusions based on demonstrably 
   superficial research does discredit to the author as well as to 
   the publisher of his monograph."
