As mentioned last week, an updated version Martin Gengerke's American Numismatic Auctions book is now available online at the Numismatic Bibliomania Society web site, on the Community Resources page.
He's received several updates from contributors just this week, and with this publication he'll undoubtedly receive some more. This is an important list for numismatic researchers, so please take a look and fill in gaps where you can, particularly in the area of auction catalogs published in the last decade or so.
In addition to Martin, we owe thanks to our NBS webmaster Bruce Perdue and NBS Secretary-Treasurer and his team at Littleton Coin Company for composing a free full-page ad for NBS in the book.
Reading the book's acknowledgement section was a trip down memory lane. I feel like an old-timer now, but once upon a time I was the new kid in the hobby of collecting American numismatic literature. Many of the good friends and mentors I met along my journey, many of them key figures in the early days of NBS, are now deceased. I visited many of them at conventions, and visited their homes and libraries. Rest in peace, my bibliophile friends:
