NOTES FROM GEORGE FREDERICK KOLBE
"One minor point:
"FIRST ILLUSTRATED NUMISMATIC
BOOK TRANSLATED" is incorrect. The book mainly depicts
Roman Emperors and Royal Ladies and does not feature much
text beyond a brief biographical sketch of the person depicted.
The text that is featured in the book is translated from an Italian
essay written in 1967 by Roberto Weiss about Fulvio and the
book. It appears in English here for the first time.
On another front, an inexpensive reprint is in preparation of
John Adams' "United States Numismatic Literature Volume I :
Nineteenth Century Catalogs." Included will be a list of
corrections and additions, and I solicit the input of E-Sylum and
Asylum readers. A preliminary list of "Corrections and Additions"
will be posted on my web site in the next several days, or I will
be glad to send prospective participants a copy upon request.
I anticipate printing a separate version of the "C & A" for
distribution, at a reasonable price, to those who already have
copies of the first edition."
