Longtime Numismatic Bibliomania Society officer Joel Orosz has launched a new column in the pages of Coin World aimed at new and beginning collectors of numismatic literature. Hooray! Joel forwarded the following announcement and request for input. Good luck!
I have achieved a lifelong ambition of becoming a bookie--a Numismatic Bookie--which will be the title of my new monthly column for Coin World. I pitched editor Beth Deisher on doing such a column, aimed at collectors and potential collectors of numismatic literature, as opposed to scholars. I hope to bring a few new collectors into the fold thereby, and to popularize the hobby in general. Beth has been very supportive of the concept, and agreed to give it a go in the regular issues of Coin World.
The first column will appear in the June 27 issue. It has been announced in the online version of Coin World, and will soon be announced in the corresponding print edition. I'd appreciate receiving any ideas E-Sylum readers have for column subjects. I can talk about any literature-related item I want--as long as I don't talk about it for more than 600 words!
My aim in writing The Numismatic Bookie is to introduce potential collectors and beginning collectors of numismatic literature to the fascinating and fun (hence the playful title) world of collecting coin books, magazines, auction catalogs, price lists and ephemera. The column won't break new ground in research--The Asylum and The E-Sylum already do a great job of that--but I hope it will attract some new collectors to a truly wonderful hobby.
