I've compiled here several short responses to various recent E-Sylum topics. -Editor
Adrián González Salinas notes that Amazon.com has a nice sale price for the upcoming new edition of Jim Noles' book, A Pocketful of History: Four Hundred Years of America-One State Quarter at a Time. He writes:
400 pages for US$10.88 (pre-publication)...very inexpensive!
Regarding Joe Boling's question about Kansas Paper Money: An Illustrated History, 1854-1935, Ron Benice writes:
The book has an excellent comprehensive index of about 500 items.
Regarding Paul Bosco's note on the Yoachum Dollar, Tom DeLorey writes:
I have scanned the 1984 Redbook, and see no mention of the Yoachum dollar fantasies. They are not in the index.
David Fanning writes:
In discussing the Massachusetts Historical Society proceedings, Anne Bentley listed the following: "Series 3, In 1832, James Mease reprinted his description of 17 colonial medals relating to Pennsylvania and most of the Comitia Americana set, and added descriptions of the 25 medals awarded by Congress in the War of 1812"
Actually, the revision of Mease was published in 1834. It's dated 1832 in the text, but it's in the 1834 "Collections." I have a copy of it in the May issue of my fixed price list The Bookshelf, which goes to the printer today.
Thanks to everyone for their feedback - E-Sylum readers are the best! -Editor
