Dan Gosling provided some great photos of NBS activities at this week's ANA convention in Boston. Thanks!
The Numismatic Bibliomania Society Symposium took place on Thursday the 12th at 11:30 am. Author John W. Adams spoke on "Medallic Portraits of Admiral Vernon".
The regular NBS meeting was held on Friday, August 13 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Massachusetts Historical Society. The featured speaker was Frank Campbell, who spoke on some of his favorite memories of books and personalities during his outstanding career as librarian of the American Numismatic Society. Below are Secretary-Treasurer Dave Sundman (left) and Frank Campbell (right).
Below are Len Augsburger, Brad Karoleff, and Joel Orosz.
I understand some awards were instituted and awarded at the meeting.
Here are George Kolbe and John Adams.
We may have some more reports in next week's issue, as well as in the next issue of our print journal, The Asylum. What a great week for numismatic literature!
THE BOOK BAZARRE

We realize the challenges involved; Dave Bowers's Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money by itself requires a small carry-on suitcase. Save the back strain and order online for fast delivery:
