JOEL MALTER LIBRARY SALE ARTICLE

The May 29, 2006 issue of Coin World has a nice article by
Jeff Starck (p112) on the upcoming sale of the Joel Malter
numismatic library.  Starck interviewed the 75-year-old Malter
at length.  Here are some quotes:

"The end of my life is close and I thought, 'I don't want to be
six feet under when my library is disposed of," Malter said,
"What makes a collection so holy you can't disassemble it and
let other guys collect it?"

Malter began buying numismatic literature before World War II,
when he was 10 or 11 years old.  "I never passed by a bookstore
that I didn't go in.  I never passed up a coin book as long as
it was adding to my library..."
