THE USE OF THE TERM "SYLLOGE" 

   In response to last week's discussion of the term "Sylloge", 
   Stuart Segan writes:  "Yes, we are thankful that the term sylloge 
   isn't bandied about much by the American dealers.  I can't 
   imagine someone of the ilk of B. Max or Kosoff referring to 
   the sylloge they compiled. 

   However, Dave Bowers loves the term sylloge and uses it 
   every chance he can get!  While attending the Bass sale, Part II, 
   I heard Dave mention at least three times that he was preparing a 
   sylloge of the Bass gold coins. Truth to tell, let's grant Dave carte 

   blanche use of the term. Of all the American dealers he is up to 
   the task of preparing a sylloge - and as far as the Bass coins go, 
   one is greatly desired and there is no one better prepared to 
   create one than Mr. Bowers."
