NBS AMERICAN NUMISMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHY?
Dave Bowers writes:
"The interest in the 1850 Eckfeldt-Dubois work prompts me to suggest a "forum" for the NBS:
How about compiling an American Numismatic Bibliography for the pre-Civil War (or even pre-1876 centennial)? The listing could include extensive articles in periodicals (e.g., the still-not-seen-by-me Jeremiah Colburn series in the Boston Evening Transcript in the late 1857s, the numerous entries in Historical Magazine, the several detailed articles in Harper's Monthly Magazine, the handful of books published, etc. All of this could be accompanied by comments from NBS members about their experiences in getting copies (ala the Newman situation with the Streeter sale), modern editorial opinions and reviews, etc."
[This would certainly be a worthwhile project for the NBS membership. Attinelli, Part III and The Historical Magazine are good starting points, and since I have a run of the early volumes, I could contribute if others are willing to help. -Editor]
