ANA LIBRARY NOTES  

   The September 1999 issue of The Numismatist contains 
   this note of interest to bibliophiles on page 1067:  "ANA 
   Member James Bixler, a certified appraiser and rare book 
   dealer, has prepared a preliminary bibliography of the ANA 
   Library's rare books.  To acquaint readers with the richness 
   and variety of the ANA's holdings, this column regularly 
   highlights one of these fine publications."  

   The month's featured book was donated by J. Roy Pennell, 
   Jr. - "Acts and Laws of His Majesty's Province of the 
   Massachusets-Bay in New England", 1743.   Some of the 
   interesting non-numismatic laws include an "Act for the 
   Relief of Idiots and Distracted Persons."    Does that include 
   bibliomaniacs...?  

   As Librarian Nawana Britenriker noted in her presentation 
   to NBS at the recent ANA convention, bibliophiles can 
   help support the library's efforts by joining FOLIS (Friends 
   of the Library/Libris in Socii).  For details, contact Nawana 
   via email at library@money.org.
