David Lange forwarded this information about his upcoming book on Coin Collecting Albums. I'm looking forward to it!
I'm close to publishing my book on National Coin Albums and related products.
The exact title is Coin Collecting Albums - A Complete History & Catalog Volume One: The National Coin Album & Related Products of Beistle, Raymond & Meghrig. It is just under 300 pages, with 80 pages in full color. The book has a hardcover and is printed on 100# paper. This is a very high quality product that is meant to last.
As the title suggests it covers everything to do with the development of all the coin album products produced by The Beistle Company (Unique Coin Holder), Wayte Raymond, Inc. (National Album, Popular Album, Unique Coin Holder, Rayway Coin Holder and Easy Display Coin Filing System) and M. Meghrig & Sons, Inc. (American Album, Green Book, Merit Coin Holder and Gem Coin Album). Each of these companies and their principals are given a full history with many unpublished photographs from family members. Finally, each and every variety of coin holders is thoroughly described and assigned a unique Lange Number for easy communication between collectors.
I'm now taking pre-orders with delivery expected in October. The pre-publication price is $65 plus $10 for priority mail shipping. I hope to be able to hold this price after publication, but there are still some variables pending, and the price may have to go up. I'll have a sample copy of the book at the ANA convention. Anyone who wants to see the book there or place a pre-order can find me at the NGC booth for most of the week. Mail orders may be paid by check made out to me or by PayPal made out to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am also offering a close-out special on my previous book, Coin Collecting Boards of the 1930s & 1940s: A Complete History, Catalog and Value Guide. This popular title provides a similar treatment to the large, one-piece coin boards which kick-started the coin collecting hobby during the Great Depression. Published at $39.95, this title is now just $20.
Mail orders must include $10 for priority mail shipping of the new coin album book. If the earlier coin board book is also ordered, the shipping cost for both is $12. All books purchased from David W. Lange will be signed, and personalized inscriptions are available upon request.
