ERIC NEWMAN ON NATURE PRINTING 

   Eric P. Newman writes: "I was delighted to read the comments 
   in The E-Sylum about nature printing.  I have several large 
   Bradbury prints on our bedroom wall to soothe me when I 
   wake up thinking about a numismatic problem. 

   Unfortunately for Bradbury and those who describe his 
   work they had never heard of the nature printing of Benjamin 
   Franklin beginning in 1737 and used for decades thereafter. 
   I wrote this matter up in The Numismatist of February 1964 
   entitled "Nature Printing on Colonial and Continental Currency." 
   The only reason I call this to your attention is that Ben would 
   have wanted it that way."
