CORRECTION: VAGI BOOK ON ROMAN COINAGE  

   Michael Marotta of Coin World quickly corrected my note 
   on David Vagi's upcoming book on The History and Coinage 
   of the Roman Empire:  "I do not understand how Sam Kazmi 
   can "announce" the publication of David Vagi's new book on 
   Roman Coins. The book is being published by Coin World."  

   I quickly apologized for the misrepresentation - I had taken 
   much of the text from Kazmi's electronic press release, which 
   was the  first place I'd seen a reference to the book.  Suellen 
   Ruttkay,  Product Manager for the book, notes that Coin 
   World won't  begin promoting it until closer to the time the 
   book is available,   "... the end of September at the earliest. 
   I think, due to the excitement about the book, some people 
   [i.e., non-Coin World people]  have jumped the gun."  

   Upon rereading Kazmi's announcement, it does say "taking 
   advance orders",  but doesn't mention a publisher.  So, our 
   apologies to Coin World;  we'll patiently await the book's 
   arrival.
