Amanda DeWees of Whitman Publishing is seeking assistance from bibliophiles to complete the new “Guide Book of the Guide Book”. Can you help? -EditorE-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. I’m in charge of shepherding it through the editorial process, and I’m happy to report that the book is jogging along nicely toward publication, but I’m 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 I’ve 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:
Finally, although I’ve already received some wonderful vintage photographs of Red Book personae, I’d welcome more! I’d 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 email@example.com or by fax at 678-891-4599. Thanks in advance!
