ANDREW ZABRISKIE BIOGRAPHY   

   This is belated news to those who have a copy of the June  
   1999 Sotheby's sale of The Captain Andrew C. Zabriskie  
   Collection, but the catalog features a nice one-page biography  
   of the pioneer American collector by David E. Tripp.  
   Zabriskie's collection of U.S. coins was sold by Henry  
   Chapman in 1909, but "Andrew Zabriskie's most lasting  
   achievement as a collector must be in the field of Political  
   tokens and medals, and most specifically his focus on the  
   sixteenth president.  His pioneering work, "A Descriptive  
   Catalogue of the Political and memorial Medals Struck in  
   Honor of Abraham Lincoln", which he wrote and published  
   in 1873, is a modest work of which only seventy-five copies  
   were printed, but it became the foundation of the collecting  
   area which has become known as Lincolniana."
