Bill Malkmus has performed an invaluable service to the Numismatic Bibliomania Society and numismatic research in general by compiling the 25-year index to our print publication, The Asylum. The NBS Board awarded Bill with a specially bound deluxe edition of the index, which appeared recently as a special issue. Five regular cloth copies fetched a total of $2000 at the fundraising auction at our annual meeting in Baltimore. -Editor

I received the specially bound presentation copy of the Asylum 25-Volume Index today. It made quite a regal gift and was a major surprise! The Harcourt Bindery did a great job from the impressive hard cover to the beautiful marbled endpapers. It reminded me of Forrest Daniel's article, "Paper Marbling in Numismatics." (This certainly is the best example of marbled paper that I own.)
I am most appreciative of this gift and the thought behind it and extend my gratitude to all those concerned with its production.
