LANGE'S BUFFALO NICKELS 2ND EDITION 

   David Lange writes: "The second edition of my book, The 
   Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels, is now at the printer and 
   is expected in about four-six weeks. The publisher is again 
   DLRC Press.  John Feigenbaum of DLRC tells me that he is 
   doing the entire standard edition in pictorial hardcover. The 
   printer is the same one used by Bowers & Merena, so the 
   book should be similar in treatment to their recent publications, 
   such as QDB's books on the 1804 dollar and early American 
   numismatics. I don't yet know the retail price, but I would 
   estimate it around $40. 

   I'm pleased to say that this book is a tremendous advance 
   over the first edition, which has been sold out for the past 
   three years. It is nearly 200 pages and includes an extremely 
   thorough, fully documented history of the creation of Fraser's 
   nickel. Letters that were only excerpted or paraphrased 
   by Taxay and Breen will appear in their entirety for the first 
   time.  All other chapters have likewise been expanded and 
   updated. 

   As with my previous books on Mercury Dimes and Lincoln 
   Cents, I'm planning to have Alan Grace bind 25 numbered, 
   signed and dated copies in quarter calf with marbled boards 
   and endpapers. E-Sylum readers probably know already that 
   Alan was the binder for Armand Champa's library, and his 
   work is of incomparable quality.  As may be expected, costs 
   have risen. The price of this edition will therefore be $185, 
   which represents my combined cost for the unbound signatures 
   and Alan's services.  Since I will be offering this at no profit to 
   myself, I will do it only if there is sufficient interest to cover my 
   investment. 

   Of course, previous purchasers of my limited edition books 
   will have the right of first refusal to their established numbers. 
   Since a few of the previous buyers have either passed away or 
   withdrawn from collecting, there will also be some slots available 
   for new purchasers. I ask that anyone interested in ordering this 
   limited edition, whether a previous or new buyer, contact me 
   ASAP.  My email address is DWLange@aol.com, and my 
   mailing address is POB 288, Morris Plains, NJ  07950-0288. 
   If you know someone who may be interested in this edition and 
   does not have email access, please pass this notice on to them. 
   I'd really like to produce this edition, but I cannot unless there 
   is sufficient response from bibliophiles."
