board. I've recently reclaimed my interest in numismatic lit --
I was very into it when I was young (in high school and early
college), but grad school really put an end to my hobbies.
George Kolbe told me about it today on the phone and had
an NBS application in the catalogue I received today
(I sent it in as well). My main interest right now is material
by Ed Frossard."
Welcome back to numismatic literature! Your editor feels
like an old timer at 41, having been into the hobby for 20
years now. I actually got started in grad school. I had
always been interested in numismatics, but didn't start buying
books until I lived in Ann Arbor while getting a degree at the
University of Michigan. There were lots of used bookstores
and I browsed whenever I got a chance, finding the occasional
early Redbook and several standard references. From there it
snowballed into full-blown numismatic bibliomania.
