I do read more than just coin books, you know. I came across the following quote of interest to bibliophiles in Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages
by Alex Wright.
It's an interesting account of how man stored and processed reams of information long before the age of the computer, a great way of providing some historical perspective. Technology may change, but people and their needs are constant.
I do what I do using a computer and Internet connection, and if Leonard Forrer were alive today he'd probably be producing the Numismatic Circular
in front of a keyboard much like mine. -Editor
