THE ASYLUM VOLUME 27, NO. 3 PUBLISHED

David Yoon, Editor of our print journal The Asylum writes: The Asylum v27n3

I've sent the next issue of The Asylum, vol. 27 no. 3, to the printers. Here's the contents list:
  • David Stone - The Mysterious Mr. French, Revealed at Last
  • Benjamin Keele - Thoughts on Preserving Digital Numismatic Literature
  • Roger S. Siboni - The Infamous Head Left/Plow Right New Jersey Coppers
  • John W. Adams - Lot 88, a True Incunable
  • David D. Gladfelter - Katen's "Pots and Pans" Fixed-Price List

John Adams' cryptically-titled article is about a piece of numismatic literature related to James Mease and Joshua Francis Fisher. Adams writes:

Noted physician, scientific thinker, and author, James Mease (1771-1846), was one of Philadelphia's most prominent citizens. In numismatic circles he remained virtually unknown until recently rediscovered as the author of "the first truly numismatic article published in America" (Eric P. Newman, The Asylum, Summer, 1992, page 4), an article first printed in 1821 and revised and expanded in the 1834 edition present here. Joshua Francis Fisher, also of Philadelphia (1807-1873), was a respected author and historian.
