GROLIER CLUB EXHIBIT OPENS 

   As first mentioned in the August 13, 2001 issue of The E-Sylum 
   (Volume 4, Number 33), an upcoming exhibition at the Grolier 
   Club (47 East 60th Street, New York, NY) will feature 
   numismatic literature.  "Numismatics in the Age of Grolier" will 
   open this Wednesday, September 12, 2001.  For more 
   information, see http://www.grolierclub.org/ExNumismatics.htm 

   From the exhibition press release:  "Numismatic literature was 
   among the most elegant and fascinating expressions of the 
   printerís art during the European Renaissance.  A wide selection 
   of these works, as well as Renaissance medals and the Greek 
   and Roman coins which inspired them, will be on view at the 
   Grolier Club September 12 through November 17, 2001. 

    "Jean Grolier, the famous French book collector for whom 
   the Club is named, was recognized by contemporaries for his 
   collection of ancient coins as well as for his numismatic books, 
   which formed a significant portion of his library."   One featured 
   item from Grolierís collection will be on view in the show - 
   The first numismatic book Ė the 1514 Paris edition of Budéís 
   De Asse et partibus, published by Josse Bude.
