The E-Sylum:  Volume 4, Number 8, February 18, 2001, Article 12

NOTES FROM GEORGE FREDERICK KOLBE 

   "One minor point: "FIRST ILLUSTRATED NUMISMATIC 
   BOOK TRANSLATED" is incorrect.  The book mainly depicts 
   Roman Emperors and Royal Ladies and does not feature much 
   text beyond a brief biographical sketch of the person depicted. 
   The text that is featured in the book is translated from an Italian 
   essay written in 1967 by Roberto Weiss about Fulvio and the 
   book. It appears in English here for the first time. 

   On another front, an inexpensive reprint is in preparation of 
   John Adams'  "United States Numismatic Literature Volume I : 
   Nineteenth Century Catalogs."  Included will be a list of 
   corrections and additions, and I solicit the input of E-Sylum and 
   Asylum readers. A preliminary list of "Corrections and Additions" 
   will be posted on my web site in the next several days, or I will 
   be glad to send prospective participants a copy upon request. 
   I anticipate printing a separate version of the "C & A" for 
   distribution, at a reasonable price, to those who already have 
   copies of the first edition."
