V3 2000 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 4, January 23, 2000, Article 4

ANS ACQUISITIONS   

   The Fall 1999 Museum newsletter of the American  
   Numismatic Society includes these notes of interest to  
   bibliophiles:  "... the Society had received the numismatic  
   library of the late Charles A. Hersh, a collection which  
   reflects Mr. Hersh's own interests, namely, the Roman  
   Republican coinage and the coinage of the Macedonian  
   kings."   

   The following note may be of interest to U.S. collectors:  
   "In closing his report on acquisitions, the Librarian  
   mentioned that the Society had just received the Garrett  
   Numismatic Archives, an outstanding donation about  
   which he would have more to say at a later date."   

   Could this be the archives of the Garretts of Baltimore, MD  
   stored at Evergreen House?   The archives were discussed  
   in The E-Sylum v2#35, August 27, 1999, after Michael  
   Berkman described his visit there.   At the time, it was  
   suggested by some that the archives be donated intact to  
   an organization such as the ANS, rather than allowing them  
   to be destroyed or dispersed.
