CORRECTION: VAGI BOOK ON ROMAN COINAGE
Michael Marotta of Coin World quickly corrected my note on David Vagi's upcoming book on The History and Coinage of the Roman Empire:
"I do not understand how Sam Kazmi can "announce" the publication of David Vagi's new book on Roman Coins. The book is being published by Coin World."
I quickly apologized for the misrepresentation -I had taken much of the text from Kazmi's electronic press release, which was the first place I'd seen a reference to the book.
Suellen Ruttkay, Product Manager for the book, notes that Coin World won't begin promoting it until closer to the time the book is available,
"…the end of September at the earliest. I think, due to the excitement about the book, some people [i.e., non-Coin World people] have jumped the gun."
Upon rereading Kazmi's announcement, it does say "taking advance orders", but doesn't mention a publisher. So, our apologies to Coin World; we'll patiently await the book's arrival.
