ROGER BURDETTE'S 1905-1908 VOLUME PUBLISHED

Roger Burdette writes: "There will be a color ad in Coin World
next week announcing availability of my new book "Renaissance
of American Coinage 1905-1908." Copies will be available for
$44.95 + $5.00 shipping until May 10. Thereafter the regular
retail price is $64.95 plus shipping.

The book is an in-depth examination of the origin and initial
production of the Saint-Gaudens $20 and $10 of 1907 and the Pratt
$5 and $2.50 released in 1908. As with the previous book, the work
is based on hundreds of original documents, drawings and photos -
many never before published. There are more than 100 previously-
unknown letters relating to the new coins! In 400 pages of text
and images, the story of the collaboration between Theodore Roosevelt
and Saint-Gaudens is revealed in a new light. The book even expands
on the decades-long animosity between Saint-Gaudens and Philadelphia
Mint Engraver Charles Barber."

The following is from the press material already sent to hobby
publications:  "Authoritative text, extensive illustrations and
thorough referencing make "Renaissance of American Coinage 1905-1908"
the only comprehensive source for this important, but poorly
understood aspect of American art and numismatics. This book will
be of special interest to historians of the early 20th century,
coin collectors, numismatic auction companies, researchers and fine
art historians. It is intended to become a standard reference for
libraries and research facilities.

Renaissance of American Coinage 1905-1908 is the second of three
books exploring the coinage redesign of 1907-1921. A companion
volume covering the 1916-1921 period (ISBN 0-9768986-0-8, available
from the publisher.) was released in October 2005, and a third
volume covering 1909-1915 is planned for release in late 2007.

The book is available direct from Seneca Mill Press LLC, PO Box
1423, Great Falls VA 22066 for $64.95 plus $5 postage."

[Roger's latest volume is eagerly anticipated.  Few numismatic
authors today go to the lengths Roger has in seeking and finding
previously unpublished original source material.  The book and
its companion volumes are a must for libraries of American
numismatic literature. -Editor]
