The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 17, April 23, 2000, Article 2

NEXT ASYLUM AT THE PRINTER 

   The year 2000 No. 1 issue of our print journal, The Asylum, 
   is at the printer.  Dues are due, and envelopes for dues payments 
   will be included with each issue.  Now would be an ideal time 
   for E-Sylum subscribers who are not yet members of NBS to 
   join up.  At only $15 per year for North American members 
   ($20 elsewhere), it's a bargain.  Members will receive all four 
   issues of the year 2000 volume of The Asylum.  An application 
   is available on our web site at http://www.coinbooks.org/ 

   Editor E. Tomlinson Fort reports that the new issue contains 
   the following: 

      President's Message by Wayne Homren 
      Editorial by E. Tomlinson Fort 
      Letters to the Editor 
      The Development of the Coin Album, Part 5, 
         by David Lange 
      Who's Who in Numismatics by Pete Smith 
      The Printer's Devil: Where Have All the Core 
         References Gone?  by Joel Orosz 
      News from the Net by Pete Smith 
      Index to The Asylum, volumes 16 to 17 
           by William Malkmus 

   Of special note is Joel Orosz's article, lamenting the fact that 
   all the major reference works on American numismatic literature 
   are largely out of print.  He expresses concern that the 
   unavailability of core reference works may be slowing the 
   growth of numismatic bibliomania among U.S. collectors.  We 
   would be interested to hear opinions from the NBS membership 
   after reading the article. 

   Along with Joel Orosz, David Lange and Pete Smith are regular 
   contributors to our journal, and are to be commended for their 
   prodigious efforts.  Our society is in their debt. 

   Finally, William Malkmus has provided an invaluable service 
   to NBS and numismatic researchers everywhere for his yeoman 
   efforts to maintain an index to The Asylum.  Indexing is not an 
   easy task, and we can never thank him enough for his efforts.
