NBS Podcast Features Dan Hamelberg
The latest episode of the NBS Bibliotalk podcast,
Collection Highlights, with Dan Hamelberg
is now available on the NBS website and other popular podcasting platforms such as Buzzsprout. In this episode, Dan Hamelberg speaks about a number of favorite items in his library, including Henry Phillips' Historical Sketches with colonial currency examples, Breen's working copy of Walter Breen's Encyclopedia, Crosby's copy of Early Coins of America, and many more.
In between Dan adds any number of revealing stories, such as being stuck with a restaurant check by Walter Breen, visiting Eric Newman's vault at the Mercantile Bank in St. Louis, and how Jack Collins missed an important plate in a Chapman catalog. The NBS podcast is produced every other month by Lianna Spurrier of Numismatic Marketing.
I gave it a listen on Friday, and it's well worth spending some time with.
While beginning numismatic bibliophiles may not recognize all the books and people mentioned, there's a lot we can all learn from Dan's great stories.
