MONEY-COUNTING BOOK RESEARCH
NBS Board Member Larry Mitchell writes:
"I am in the process of completing primary research for an article on early children's money-counting books. To date, such research has focused primarily on materials in the renowned Elizabeth Ball Collection of Historical Children's Materials at the Lilly Library, Indiana University.
To provide as comprehensive an overview of these books as possible, though, I would appreciate hearing from anyone who may have such books in his or her collection, or who may know
of such collections that are available for primary research. A typical title in this genre is:
The Pence Table Playfully Paraphrased / by Peter
Pennyless. London: J. Harris, <1818>.
Any help would be appreciated and gratefully acknowledged upon publication."
