MATTHEW YOUNG NUMISMATIC LIBRARY 

   Eric Newman writes:   "I recently ran across a fantastic 
   1839 auction sale by Sotheby's of the library of Matthew 
   Young --- enormous quantities of early numismatic books. 
   Has this ever been written up in America? 

   The sale began on Nov. 26, 1838 and lasted for four days. 
   It took 39 pages to list all of the numismatic literature items. 
   A great quantity was naturally on Classical numismatics, but 
   there is everything.  There must have been loads of 
   collectors at the time to have that many books and articles 
   published." 

   So.. can any of you tell us more about Matthew Young 
   and his numismatic library?
