The E-Sylum:  Volume 10, Number 49, December 2, 2007, Article 1

WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM DECEMBER 2, 2007

Among our recent subscribers are Scott Tappa of F+W Publications
and Bill Eckberg.  Welcome aboard!  We now have 1,088 subscribers.

This week we open with word of the hospitalization of a prominent
numismatic author, followed by book reviews beginning with Jeff
Reichenberger's pamphlet based on the diaries of William A. Ashbrook.
New subscriber Bill Eckberg contributed reviews of "The Macuquina
Code" and "Henry Voigt and Others Involved With America’s Early
Coinage".  Gene Hessler is working on his autobiography, and Dick
Johnson provides an update on research for his directory of coin
and medal artists.

In responses to earlier E-Sylum items we have background
information on Robert E. Hecht Jr. and the antiquities trade,
and the numismatic author who wrote a book on the subject of
pederasty.

In the news, digs at the London Olympic site have unearthed
artifacts and an early Roman coin, important medals have been
stolen from a New Zealand museum, and another "million dollar
bill" appears.  Also, we have a story about the upcoming sale
of Lafayette's gold Society of the Cincinnati medal.
Coincidentally, Rich Jewell asked about a 1826 Erie Canal
Completion Medal in gold which he speculates may also have
come from Lafayette's collection.

In my numismatic diary for this week a coin set is
completed and a box arrived from the U.S. Mint.  To learn
about anthropodermic bibliopegy, read on.  Have a great week,
everyone.
