V10 2007 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 10, Number 47, November 18, 2007, Article 9

ON THE E-SYLUM ARTICLE ARCHIVE

Last week I republished a June 8, 2003 E-Sylum article by
Fred Lake about how he teased John J. Ford about his passion
for pristine condition numismatic literature.  Alan Weinberg
wrote: “Just wanted to say I roared aloud at Fred Lake's
placing tire tracks on the wrapping paper for the 'slabbed'
book he was sending Ford. A gem of a story!”

[It is a great story, and great stories always bear repeating.
That’s why we have an online archive.  I guess you could say
that the dirty little secret of The E-Sylum is that the goal
isn’t to publish a weekly newsletter, although that's a
driving force and lots of fun.  The real goal of The E-Sylum
is to build up a great archive of numismatic information one
story at a time.   And a very pleasant side effect of the
archive is that it acts to draw in experts from many other
fields who find out about us by locating earlier articles
through web searches - the next item is a wonderful example
of that.

If you're not a regular visitor to the E-Sylum archive,
please check it out.  Every single E-Sylum item is available
there.  The top level of the archive is a chronological table
by year, and there is also a link for viewing the complete
E-Sylum Table of Contents from day one to now.  Also, at the
bottom of every individual article page is a Google search
box. -Editor]
