The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 33, August 13, 2006, Article 2

NEXT ASYLUM ISSUE PREVIEWED

NBS President Pete Smith writes: "The second 2006 issue of The
Asylum is in production and should be in members' mailboxes soon.
While readers of The E-Sylum enjoy getting their electronic news
every week, the quarterly Asylum is for those who still like to
read ink on paper.

The cover story is about "Sir Frank Merry Stenton and the Coinage
of the Anglo-Saxons." His writing took a more historical perspective
than just numismatic. This article is written by The Asylum editor,
E. Tomlinson Fort.

A look at numismatic literature by a newcomer to the field is
presented by Alison Frankel. Her article on "Discovering the
Numismatic Bibliomania Society" discusses her attendance at the
2004 Kolbe auction of the Ford library and related areas that
interest her.

The American Numismatic Society recently received a donation of
correspondence sent to the Chapman brothers. In two articles,
Len Augsburger discusses some of what he found in this valuable
resource.

The first article, "Woodward/Chapman Correspondence at the
American Numismatic Society" mentions contact between the
established Woodward and the upstart Chapman brothers around
the time of their first sale in 1878. Correspondence continued
into 1881 as Woodward expressed admiration for the Chapman plates
and discussed production of his catalogs.

Augsburger's second article, "The ANS Chapman Files: Major William
Boerum Wetmore" provides biographical information on Wetmore, a
previously little-known collector. While there were times when
Wetmore could acquire great rarities like the 1804 dollar, there
were other times when his wife did not want him buying anything.
Perhaps some of our modern collectors can relate to that."

[Remember, these articles are ONLY available in the printed Asylum.
