Fred Lake of Lake Books forwarded the following information about his next literature mail bid sale, closing August 19, 2008. -EditorThe 94th mail-bid sale of numismatic literature by Lake Books is now available for viewing on the company's web site at http://www.lakebooks.com/current.html
The 383-lot catalog features selections from the library of Col. Bill Murray, a columnist for "Coin World" for many years. Bill has consistently vouched for the dictum "buy the book before the coin" in both his writings and his personal collecting habits.
Another consignor is John Hamilton of West Palm Beach. Volumes from John's library will appear in several of our sales in the coming year.
Highlights include: a bound volume of "The Numismatist" for the years 1896 and 1897, books on coinage and medals by Le Menestrier and Vaillant written in the 1600s and 1700s, a full set of the Haxby volumes on Obsolete Bank Notes, a set of Fauver's works on American Counters, John Adams' two-volume set on numismatic literature, Elvira Clain-Stefanelli's 1985 "Numismatic Bibliography", plus many other subjects relating to the numismatic collecting experience.
