THE HENRY CHAPMAN CATALOG FIND AT THE FREE LIBRARY OF PHILADELPHIA

Bob Vail published an article about remnants of the Henry Chapman
Library in the holdings of the Free Library of Philadelphia in the
March 2006 issue of Penny-Wise, the official publication of Early
American Coppers, Inc.

After Del Bland tipped him off in 1995 to a Numismatist article
by Pete Smith mentioning the remnants, Bob made arrangements for
the two of them to visit the library during the May 1996 EAC
Convention in Philadelphia.

"When I called back later, a lady assistant who was listening to
my request asked me to hold while she went to check a pile of stuff.
Several minutes later she came back on the line and asked me if
the name "Matthew Stickney" meant anything to me.  DID IT EVER!"

"In our wildest imagination we didn't come close to imagining the
"goodies" that awaited our perusal."  The pair reviewed three
carts of books over a two-day period.  Bob's article contains a
partial list of the material.
