MONEY-COUNTING BOOK RESEARCH 

   NBS Board Member Larry Mitchell writes:  "I am in the process 
   of completing primary research for an article on early children's 
   money-counting books.  To date, such research has focused 
   primarily on materials in the renowned Elizabeth Ball Collection 
   of Historical Children's Materials at the Lilly Library, Indiana 
   University. 

   To provide as comprehensive an overview of these books as 
   possible, though, I would appreciate hearing from anyone who 
   may have such books in his or her collection, or who may know 
   of such collections that are available for primary research.  A 
   typical title in this genre is: 

      The Pence Table Playfully Paraphrased / by Peter 
      Pennyless.  London: J. Harris, <1818>. 

   Any help would be appreciated and gratefully 
   acknowledged upon publication."  Larry may be contacted
