Ray Williams submitted this follow-up to last week's item about the Colonial Coin Collectors Club survey of Colonial Numismatic Literature.
With respect to your observation about the Colonial Numismatic Literature Survey not having a short description about each of the items, our next project is to write Colonial Numismatic Bibliography. Years ago, Mary Sauvain had written one, Ray Flanigan had later expanded on it, and one or two others have also dabbled in this area.
Colonial numismatics covers such a large number of different specialty areas, and I expect that this will be a large project that could possibly be the size of a book at some point. Certainly though, we can assemble a list of recommended books, catalogs and websites that we can have posted on our website. It is my hope that Steve Frank will continue with what he started with the survey, and head the project to assemble the Colonial Numismatic Bibliography
