In this issue NBS President Marc Ricard announces some of the club events planned for this summer's American Numismatic Association
World's Fair of Money, to be held August 9-13 in Anaheim, CA. I've already made my travel arrangements and hope to see many of
our readers there. -Editor

What an exciting time to be a part of Numismatic Literature collecting! With the Newman Portal project in full swing, various mail-bid
and auction sales, and many new books becoming available, it gives me great hope for the future of our collecting specialty. We
are also very privileged to enjoy our fine NBS publication, The Asylum, which you hold in your hands right now. This is a benefit
of your ongoing membership in our great organization. I encourage all of you to share your copies with non-NBS members and friends, and ask
them to join.
Another benefit that the NBS shares with the general collecting public is our annual Symposium, and General Meeting and Auction, that
take place at the ANA’s World’s Fair of Money. I am continuing to work within the numismatic community to finalize our speakers for both
events, and I encourage your donations of fine numismatic literature to our auction. This is the only non-dues fundraiser that our
organization has, and the proceeds continue to be a much needed source of income for our continuing operations. Please contact George Kolbe
at firstname.lastname@example.org or 909-338-6527 to donate your item to the auction.
Please stay tuned to the E-Sylum for more details on our events at the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim, California, August
2106. Our events are scheduled for Thursday and Friday, August 11 and 12.
It is time to vote for our 2015 Jack Collins Award for best new contributor and Joel J. Orosz Award for best article in last year’s
volume of The Asylum, which will be presented in Anaheim. The ballot is inserted in this issue. You may return completed ballots to
the address printed on the ballot or vote online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T9F8SG9.
I thank all of you for continuing to encourage everyone in the hobby to “Buy the Book, Before the Coin.”
