Time to get ready for numismatic bibliophile events at next month's American Numismatic Association show in Pittsburgh.
With the 2023 ANA World's Fair of Money in Pittsburgh only weeks away I wanted to
share some highlights of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society's events. From Tuesday through
Friday the NBS will host our club table (#433) located near literature dealers Charles Davis and
Kolbe & Fanning. The table will provide an opportunity to receive a commemorative NBS coffee
mug with a $25 donation and view highlights from Friday's charity auction. Please be sure to
stop by on Wednesday, August 9th for a special book binding demonstration. Members will be
able to make their own updated The Asylum index for vols. 31-40 (2013-2022) that will take
about 45 minutes. Copies of the book will be made available to all NBS members at a future
date. Like all of our gatherings, the table is a great chance to connect with old friends and meet
new literature enthusiasts.
The NBS Symposium will be on Thursday, August 10th at 1:00 in room 328. We are
delighted to have researcher and author Dr. Harry Salyards sharing insights into his monumental
book Eagle Poised On A Bank Of Clouds : The United States Silver Dollars Of 1795-1798. Prior
to the Symposium the Board will conduct their annual meeting at 11:30 in room 328.
The General Meeting will be on Friday, August 11th at 11:30 in room 325. The meeting
will feature the presentation of The Asylum author awards, a video tour of the amazing library at
NBS Board member Shanna Schmidt's office, and our all-important charity auction. Again this
year we would like to invite attendees to bring a rare, obscure or whimsical item or two to share
during an informal fellowship time at the conclusion of official business. This will be an
opportunity to share a special item from your library and connect with fellow bibliophiles.
We hope many of you will be able to attend our events and help support the mission of
I missed the convention last year due to a conflict with our daughter's college move-in date, but I'm looking forward to the 2023 show in my hometown of Pittsburgh. I plan to be at all of the NBS events as well as the NBS table, and hope to see many of our readers throughout the week.
As a teaser for the General Meeting program, here are some views of Shanna's library from her email Newsletter #206, published on Friday July 14.
