LATEST ISSUE OF THE ASYLUM IS ON THE WAY TO NBS MEMBERS

Bill Burd writes:
I recently received my copy of The Asylum and knowing we were promised the list of the 100 greatest numismatic books I anxiously tore it open. I expected a list of books 1 thru 100 with no commentary. To my surprise there was a paragraph or two for each book. But wait, I must be missing pages covering number 1 thru 40. Then I settled down, relaxed and started to read. What a tease Leonard is. How long do we wait for 1 thru 40? This is a grand effort by Len - what a superb job.


Bill's note was caught in the email ether for a couple weeks, but now we have an answer to his question. -Editor


David Yoon, editor of our print journal The Asylum writes:
I've sent the next issue of The Asylum, vol. 27 no. 2, to the printers. Here's the contents list:
  • Leonard Augsburger - The One Hundred Greatest Items of United States Numismatic Literature: A Survey of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society, Part 2
  • D. Wayne Johnson - Defining and Voting on "Greatest" Numismatic Works: A Contrarian View of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society Survey
  • RyAnne Scott - News from the ANA Library: Numismatic Literature at the World's Fair of Money


I, too, am awaiting the unveiling of the top forty choices. I was equally surprised and impressed with Len's commentary on each item.

Remember - although The E-Sylum is free to all, only paid members of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society receive The Asylum, the print journal of record for numismatic bibliophiles. Membership information is available each week at the top right of each E-Sylum issue, and on our newly updated web site at www.coinbooks.org . -Editor
