WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM 10 JUNE, 2007

We now have 1,125 subscribers. This week we open with a short 
announcement for NBS members followed by reports from numismatic 
literature dealers Charles Davis and George Kolbe. Next up are 
reports of two new books by Whitman Publishing and an important 
article on Greek coinage references in a recent issue of The Celator. 

Research queries this week include topics as varied as Alexendre 
Vattamare and the name and origin of a typographic symbol meaning 
'coin reverse'. Reports of recent work by numismatic researchers 
come from Dave Ginsburg (on Southern gold) and Patrick McMahon (on 
the business and death of William von Bergen).

My London Diary resumes this week with reports on my trips to see 
Douglas Saville and the London Coin Fair. Other items with a British 
flair cover a Bristol Mint official gone bad, Thomas Simon's Petition 
Crown, and the continued controversy over the choice of Adam Smith 
for the Bank of England's new 20 note.

To learn which famous numismatist was thrown out of medical school 
because he used his abilities as a ventriloquist to make the cadavers 
"talk," read on. Have a great week, everyone.
