BOLING COMMENTS ON RECENT BOOK REVIEWS

Last week I reviewed the new 2nd edition of Numismatic Photography by Mark Goodman. Joe Boling writes: Goodman Numismatic Photography 2nd ed
My criticism of it is that, although titled Numismatic Photography, all he deals with are fabricated metal discs (and a few paragraphs about plastic cases containing metal discs). There is not one word about paper money, orders and decorations, plaquettes, stocks and bonds, or primitive money, and almost nothing about items larger than 40mm.


My review was definitely lacking in failing to point out this obvious omission. Coin Photography would have been a far better title for the book. Joe's right; although the title proclaims the subject to be numismatic photography, it is restricted to just coins, not any other form of object in the broader numismatic field. -Editor


I also published a review by Joe Benice of Kansas Paper Money: An Illustrated History, 1854-1935 by Steve Whitfield. Regarding this book Joe Boling adds:
The lack of a straight alphabetical organization in Steve Whitfield's new Kansas paper money book is no problem so long as there is an comprehensive index - which Ron Benice does not mention. Is there one?
