The E-Sylum:  Volume 2, Number 24, June 13, 1999, Article 9

SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: ALAN LUEDEKING  

   "I collect first and foremost Nicaragua, which is where I grew 
   up, son of American expatriates in the machinery business 
   there.  I also collect papal medals of Civitavecchia (the port 
   of Rome) and Byzantine bronze (anybody have a spare 3 
   nummi? (oh, sure!) I also take pride in my numismatic library 
   of Latin America, which has necessitated building expansions 
   to my home and displaced less important things (like the kids 
   ;-)). My numismatic beginnings and bibliomaniacal adventures 
   are detailed in the only lonely article I wrote for The Asylum 
   (Summer-Fall 1997).  I greatly enjoy numismatic writing but 
   have done little of it; just one technical article in PCNS Journal 
   (1/89), NI Bulletin (9/93), and LANSA (10/95). One of my 
   passions is literature on Spanish Proclamation coins and medals 
   (especially of the Americas), and I'm missing the following, so 
   I'll take advantage of this forum and plea for help:  

   1) Lyman Low, the Gonzales del Valle sales of 7/10/1907, 
   7/11/1907, and 9/3/1907 (Gengerke 121,122,123).  

   2) Perez Varela, Don Hipolito, "Ensayo de Un Catalogo 
   Descriptivo de Las Medallas de Proclamacion de los Reyes de 
   Espana", Havana 1863.  

   3) Addison, Joseph, "Dialogos Sobre La Utilidad De Las 
   Medallas Antiguas...[etc.]"  translated by Don Pedro Alonso 
   O'Crouley (O'Crowley?), Madrid 1795. Originally published 
   in English, but the O'Crouley Spanish edition is much more 
   interesting as it appends O'Crouley's own catalog of his 
   Proclamation medals, extensively referenced by Medina and 
   Herrera."
