THE USE OF THE TERM "SYLLOGE"
In response to last week's discussion of the term "Sylloge",
Stuart Segan writes:
"Yes, we are thankful that the term sylloge
isn't bandied about much by the American dealers. I can't
imagine someone of the ilk of B. Max or Kosoff referring to
the sylloge they compiled.
However, Dave Bowers loves the term sylloge and uses it
every chance he can get! While attending the Bass sale, Part II,
I heard Dave mention at least three times that he was preparing a
sylloge of the Bass gold coins. Truth to tell, let's grant Dave carte
blanche use of the term. Of all the American dealers he is up to
the task of preparing a sylloge - and as far as the Bass coins go,
one is greatly desired and there is no one better prepared to
create one than Mr. Bowers."
