THE CRITIC'S CORNER   

   For at least the next few weeks, The E-Sylum will  
   feature "The Critic's Corner", where we'll put selected  
   numismatic books in the spotlight and critique their key  
   features.   Please note that we're not discussing content,  
   which could be debated endlessly by researchers;  rather,  
   we'll take the bibliophile's perspective.   

   What are the book's best and worst features?  What could  
   have been done to improve it?  Say you were the editor,  
   publisher, or designer of the book in question, and were  
   presented with the manuscript.   What, if anything, would  
   you have done to improve it?   

   Would you have changed the illustrations?  The text?  
   The layout?  The arrangement?  The numbering system?  
   What features could have improved its usability, readability,  
   or reference value?   

   To start things off, I'd like to nominate "Ancient Coin  
   Reference Reviews" by Dennis J. Kroh, Empire Coins,  
   Inc, 1993.  If you have any comments on this popular  
   bibliography, or  would like to nominate other titles for  
   consideration in the future, please write to me at  
   whomren@coinlibrary.com
