The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 31, July 30, 2006, Article 2

LATEST ASYLUM ISSUE HITS THE STREETS

The latest issue of our print journal, The Asylum (Volume XXIV, No. 1),
has been hitting the mailboxes of Numismatic Bibliomania Society members.
Although The E-Sylum is free to all, only members receive the printed
Asylum.

That distinguished-looking gentleman on the cover is not numismatic
literature dealer George Kolbe, but rather Joseph Florimond Loubat,
the subject of NBS President Pete Smith's cover article.  Born in
France in 1831, he authored on of the great works of American numismatic
literature, "Medallic History of the United States of America 1776-1876"
(New York, 1878).

The second feature article by David Gladfelter is "Coinage on Postcards:
The Cambist's Glorious Last Hurrah".  This is the second part of the
well-illustrated article, which began in the previous issue.

Remember, these articles are ONLY available in the printed Asylum.
To join NBS, see the informant at the bottom of every E-Sylum issue,
which I'll repeat here:

at this address: club_nbs_member_app.html

To join, print the application and return it with your check
to the address printed on the application. Membership is only
$15 to addresses in the U.S., $20 elsewhere.
