NEW BOOK: 50 YEARS OF NUMISMATIC BOOKSELLING

For numismatic bibliophiles, what could be better than a book about numismatic bookselling? A new book has just been released on the career of NBS co-founder George Kolbe and his half century in the field of numismatic literature. -Editor

Kolbe Fifty years of Numismatic Bookselling

David and Maria Fanning have published a tribute volume in celebration of George F. Kolbe’s 50th anniversary in the field of numismatic books. The 100-page volume brings together short recollections and appreciations of Kolbe by nearly thirty clients, friends and colleagues, and also includes a detailed listing of his auction catalogues and an introduction by David Fanning.

The tribute volume, a softcover octavo printed on fine paper and illustrated in color, has been published in a very limited edition of 100 copies, more than half of which have been reserved for contributors and family. The remaining copies are available at a publication price of $75 plus shipping at numislit.com.

I was happy to be a contributor to the volume. Here's the complete list, and a couple sample pages. -Editor
