ONLINE UPDATE: AMERICAN NUMISMATIC AUCTIONS BY MARTIN GENGERKE

Martin Gengerke submitted this announcement about a forthcoming update to his indispensible book, American Numismatic Auctions. Pictured is my copy, the limied deluxe hardcover edition (#12 of 30 produced. -Editor

Gengerke, American Numismatic Auctions For years I've received requests to update my work, American Numismatic Auctions. Time, and a somewhat limited audience, have made a new edition impractical. However, with the growing acceptance of Adobe's PDF format for document distribution, and the easy availability of free software for viewing PDF documents, a new "edition" of my work is once again possible.

Within a week or so the three volumes of my original work will be available in a single PDF file. It will be updated however, I no longer have as great a source of current catalogs, so many sales of the past few years will be missing.

I've decided to make this file available as a FREE download for all. It can be downloaded at the Numismatic Bibliomania Society site, at Krause Publications, and other sites. If you don't have a PDF reader, Adobe's PDF reader is free, and there are numerous other free readers available at various download sites such as www.filehippo.com.

I welcome any and all comments, changes, corrections, and additions the more everyone helps, the better future editions will be. I can be reached at gengerke@aol.com. Enjoy!

This is great news for U.S. numismatic bibliophiles. Martin's compilation is invaluable for collectors and researchers. Over the years I've found myself using it more than nearly any other book in my library. NBS will host a copy of the online book, which will include a full-page ad for NBS which Martin set aside for us for free. Thanks! -Editor
