BOOK PREVIEW: BOWERS' ENCYCLOPEDIA ON COLONIAL AND EARLY AMERICAN COINS

Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing writes: "In other news:
Q. David Bowers has submitted to Whitman his manuscript for a
monumental new encyclopedia on colonial and early American coins
and tokens. This is a massive and detailed work that was started
from scratch (not building on previous works). It gathers Bowers'
own vast knowledge of the subject as well as all the latest
research and insight from colonial-coin experts around the
country.

"The book will be illustrated in full color with thousands of
images, and is projected to land around the 500-page mark. Many
E-Sylum subscribers have contributed their time and talent to
the manuscript, sharing their collections for study and photography,
offering feedback and opinions, etc. This is going to be the
magnum opus of the colonial field."
