MORE ON BOOSEL'S 1873 BOOK

Last week David Gladfelter wrote: "Harry X Boosel's articles on the
numismatics of the year 1873 didn't stop with his 1960 book. My copy
(signed and numbered 468) has 4 supplements bound in at the back,
the latest one dated 1967."

Dave Lange writes: "My copy of Harry's book is the same as David
Gladfelter's and is number 493. It has the four supplements bound
in, but it doesn't include the ones he described as being tipped in.
These must have been added by a previous owner, as I got my book
directly from Harry.

We were exchanging correspondence about the 1873 Open 3, No Arrows
half dollar when he mentioned that he had bound copies of his
Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine articles. I bought his book for a
modest price, and he inscribed it all in caps: "BEST WISHES TO DAVID
LANGE, FROM ONE NUMISMATIST TO ANOTHER! HB [in script] 5-22-83" There's
a nice little flourish underneath his initials and the date, and he
signed his name in full just above the hand written number.

The binding is very plain, with black, cloth covers of the type used
by public libraries and the title of the book and his name stamped
in gold on just the front cover."
