On September 4, 1998 the first issue of what we now call The E-Sylum was emailed to a list of members and friends of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society. Now archived on our web site as Volume 1, Number 1, that first message started the ball rolling. Here's an excerpt:

This is intended to be a moderated, low-volume mailing list, with no more
than one message every week or so. Its purpose and use will evolve over
time - please send us your comments and suggestions.
In the meantime, please visit our web site, and forward this note to any
other email pen-pal you think might have an interest. Remember, the list
isn't limited to only NBS members. Don't assume they're already on the
list; we're starting small, but with your help we can grow.
Grow it did, one new reader at a time with help from current subscribers. If you enjoy The E-Sylum please do help spread the word to others you know who share your interest in all things numismatic. Subscriptions are still free to all, and we're available in multiple formats in addition to the basic email subscription.
Here's The E-Sylum archive Table of Contents. Explore and enjoy a trip down numismatic Memory Lane!
