Sorry about last week's double mailing - I accidentally sent out two copies of the issue. This week we open with a report on last week's Kolbe-Fanning literature sale and some details on numismatic literature in Ray Czahor's upcoming sale. Next up is an announcement of the new edition of the Red Book, and two book reviews.

Other topics this week include the deluxe catalog of the Jerry Buss collection, the late Bill Cowburn, Eric Newman's pattern coin sale, the David Fore sale, David Ganz' travels, COINage Magazine and money artist Igor Arinich.

To learn more about the numismatic aspects of leprosy, "an old American dollar of the date 1795", Tom Thumb's Lilliputian visiting card, William Idler's return address, chicken counterstamp, the shoe full of medieval coins and the Russian Hobo Nickel carver, read on. Have a great week, everyone!
