LYMAN LOW'S LIBRARY CREDO 

   In his recent book, "The Rare Silver Dollars Dated 1804 
   and the Exciting Adventures of Edmund Roberts", Q. 
   David Bowers recounts Lyman Low's 1900 credo on 
   numismatic libraries, which is still relevant today (p411): 

   "The foundation of a library should always accompany 
   the collection of a cabinet of coins.  To fully enjoy your 
   treasures, books are necessary; coin study cannot be 
   conducted intelligently without them.  If we wish to 
   learn the particulars in detail of any coin, just make a 
   specialty of it for a time, and you will find much that 
   comes to your notice."
