Tom Wetter has been working hard to build a top-notch online bibliography of American numismatics on the Numismatic Bibliomania Society web site. To finish it, he needs your help. He's created a web page listing the editions he requires images of to complete the first part of the bibliography, The One Hundred Greatest Items of United States Numismatic Literature.
See the link below. Because NBS aspires to have images of every edition of each of the books (even reprints) in the bibliography, it's a lengthy list. But that makes for a target-rich environment where any one of us has an opportunity to chip in. Items from your numismatic library could be the "plate books" on the site.
Here's a VERY short excerpt from the beginning of the list. Please click on the link below to review the complete list. Please help out if you can - we NEED your contributions to make this project a success.
