WHITMAN PUBLISHING SEEKS GUIDE BOOK EPHEMERA FOR NEW BOOK

Amanda DeWees of Whitman Publishing is seeking assistance from bibliophiles to complete the new Guide Book of the Guide Book. Can you help? -Editor
E-Sylum readers will probably recall the recent discussion of the upcoming Guide Book of the Official Red Book of United States Coins (the Guide Book of the Guide Book, or GBGB) by Frank Colletti. Im in charge of shepherding it through the editorial process, and Im happy to report that the book is jogging along nicely toward publication, but Im hoping that E-Sylumists will be able to help me fill in a few gaps.

The GBGB will be illustrated with vintage Red Book advertisements from publications like the Numismatist, but Ive been unable to find a print ad for some editions. Collectors who have back issues of numismatic periodicals could help me by checking for Red Book ads and allowing me to borrow them for scanning (or emailing me their own high-resolution scans).

At present I lack print ads for the following Red Book editions:
  • 31st through 34th (cover dates 1978 through 1981)
  • 36th through 41st (cover dates 1983 through 1988)
  • 45th and 46th (cover dates 1992 and 1993)
  • 50th (cover date 1997)
Im also hoping to find book reviews of the Red Book from its 50th edition to the present. Anyone who finds these would earn my gratitude by faxing them to me or mailing me photocopies.

Finally, although Ive already received some wonderful vintage photographs of Red Book personae, Id welcome more! Id just need to borrow these long enough to scan them; originals will be returned to the gracious lender.

I can be reached by email at amanda.dewees@whitmanbooks.com or by fax at 678-891-4599. Thanks in advance!
