The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 33, August 13, 2000, Article 5

LITERATURE EXHIBIT WINNERS 

   Also awarded at the ANA convention was The Aaron Feldman 
   Memorial Exhibit Award, established in 1991 by NBS with a 
   $3,000 endowment.  The award is given by the American 
   Numismatic Association to the best exhibit of numismatic 
   literature at their annual convention. The award is named in 
   honor of literature dealer Aaron Feldman, who has been 
   credited with "coining" the phrase, "Buy the book before the 
   coin." 

   This years' winners had not yet been made public when your 
   Editor left the convention - if you know the results,  please 
   let me know for publication in next week's E-Sylum.  One 
   planned exhibit failed to appear.  The remaining exhibits were: 

      "Building a Set of The Numismatist" - this exhibit 
      displayed the rare first six volumes, from the Paul 
      Fouts set. 

      "Auction Catalogs That Led Me to Collect Numismatic 
      Literature" - this exhibit displayed several interesting 
      U.S. auction catalogs, starting with the 1867 Mickley 
      sale by W. Elliot Woodward. 

   There was also a nice exhibit by Pete Smith in the Local 
   Interest category: "An Illustrated History of the Four 
   Mints at Philadelphia" - this exhibit highlighted literature 
   and ephemera about the different mint buildings in 
   Philadelphia over the years. 

   Several other exhibits in various categories included 
   numismatic literature or ephemera.  The overall quality of 
   the exhibits this year was excellent - an inspiration to 
   researchers and collectors alike.
