ANS DUPLICATE LITERATURE SALE REPORT

Last week we published some photos taken by Mike Paradis in
New York at the American Numismatic Society's duplicate
literature sale. Ray Williams writes: "I had the pleasure of
attending the Groves Forum at the ANS last week.  These have
always been educational and fun events - this one was also!
Making the trek to NYC by train, I decided to go in early and
check out what books the ANS was offering in their Book Sale.
I'm sure that many bargains were had on the previous Saturday,
but there was much still available on Wednesday.

"I needed to be selective about how much I bought - everything
would need to be carried to the PATH Train to accompany me
home.  Looking through the shelves, I was kicking myself for
not driving my car!  Here's what I purchased:

"Krause Standard Catalog of World Coins 1701-1800 ($5),
Krause Standard Catalog of World Coins for a 7 year old
friend ($5), Circulating Counterfeits of the Americas (1998
COAC)($10), Copper Coinage of the State of NJ (Trudgen) ($10),
AJN vol 13, 14 & 15 ($5 each), ANS Museum Notes 33 (5 copies)
and 1, ($5 each).  There were stacks of postcards and I
spotted an attractive card with a Noe 1 Pine Tree on it.
These were free, but I made a donation because I took about
30, which I plan to use.

"The main room on the first floor had book shelves around the
perimeter, all categorized by topic, country or time period.
On the floor were stacks by year of the numismatist and other
periodicals.  At the time I was shopping, there was a young
man handling sales who was fascinating to talk to...  although
he is not a numismatist, he is an underwater archeologist - a
profession that seems exciting and adventurous.

"A friend asked me why I still add to my library - there are
so many books I have already and I won't read them all...  I
replied that although I surely won't read them all, it's
comforting to know they are there to refer to at a moment's
notice."
