QUERIES FROM BOB KNEPPER ON DANISH PATTERNS, NUMISMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHY

Bob Knepper has two questions for our readers. He writes:

"What, if any, book or website covers Danish pattern coins
and includes pictures?  I have "Danske Provemonter" by Gert
Posselt but that covers only 1983 to 1989.  If there is such
a book, where can I buy or borrow it?

"Is there any book or website that brings "Numismatic
Bibliography" by E. E. Clain-Stefanelli more up to date?"

[Perhaps one of our readers can help identify a reference
on Danish patterns.  As for an update to the Clain-Stefanelli
numismatic bibliography, I'm not aware of anything outside
of the ongoing American Numismatic Society 'Numismatic
Literature' series.  The sheer size of the field (evidenced
by the tiny print and huge pagecount of the 1985
Clain-Stefanelli work) would lend itself to a web-based
publication in the future.  Has the ANS 'Numismatic
Literature' series already gone all-digital?  I recall
reading something about that.  -Editor]

Bob adds: "Here's another question related to numismatic
bibliography: How can I determine the latest editions,
in or out of print, of various numismatic books, particularly
the Whitman books?"

[Bob checked with Whitman and was told they had no such list
of their own in and out of print books.  While the editions
of their latest offerings could be determined by reading the
company's latest product catalog or web site, things get murky
when titles go out of print.  With none to sell the publisher
has little incentive to maintain a list.  -Editor]
