THOUGHTS ON FRED REED'S NEW LINCOLN BOOK

Regarding Fred Reed's upcoming book on images of President
Lincoln, Ginger Rapsus writes (from the Land of Lincoln!):
"I am delighted to hear about the new Lincoln book!  I have
a collection of Lincoln coins, medals and tokens (which I
have exhibited at the FUN show) and this reference has been
needed for quite a while.  When was the last update of
Lincoln in Numismatics--1966 or so?"

[As I noted last week, the last reprint of the King reference
on Lincoln in Numismatics was the 1966 TAMS publication.
But that was simply a reprint of the earlier Numismatist
articles, and not an updated listing. -Editor]

Dick Johnson writes: "How creative of Fred Reed to come up
with the title for his forthcoming book, 'Abraham Lincoln,
the Image of His Greatness:  Ideal, Idol & Icon.' I love
the alliteration of the repeated 'I' initials. I'll bet in
print, however, in the future this will be shortened to:
"Lincoln IIII," and perhaps in conversation to 'Lincoln
eye four.' "
