Tom Michael of Numismatic News posted a note in his blog this week about the new edition of Eric Newman's classic work on early U.S. paper money. -EditorJust a few issues back in The E-Sylum, I was reading a piece about Colonial Paper Money. The article mentioned the venerable Eric P. Newman's The Early Paper Money of America as a source and that made me wonder if people knew that a new edition of the book would be coming out very soon.
Indeed, the 5th edition of The Early Paper Money of America has finally arrived at our offices here in Iola and will soon be available for sale on our website and through numismatic book dealers.
The new edition offers some excellent improvements, including many color images, countless text revisions, updated and expanded note values from Stuart Levine encompassing the highest grades currently available and more. This nearly 500 page hardcover is essential to any numismatic library for it's comprehensive coverage of American Colonial Paper Money. The cover price is $95.00, but if stock arrives soon, interested buyers can take advantage of the current 15% discount offered for KP Books throughout October 14th.
Kudos really need to be extended to all the folks involved in bringing this 5th edition to market. It was a massive task that carried on for several years and we have these people to thank for it's completion:
Eric P. Newman - for his enthusiasm and expansive research and updates
Stuart Levine - for his vast and highly accurate updating of market values
Kara Grundman - for her outstanding efforts at designing a comfortably flowing reference work
George Cuhaj - for his expert assistance in acquiring and processing color images
and last, but not least,
Randy Thern - for his dedication and perseverance in guiding this book project through several years of internal company changes
Thanks for bringing a great new edition of this classic reference work back to the Early American market!
