I was pleased to meet Darren Burgess of Australia at last year's American Numismatic Association convention in Anaheim, CA. -Editor
I wish I could attend more ANA events, but that's what you get for living in Australia. Meanwhile I'm continuing to enjoy all the incredible output from the E-Sylum and am also
relishing my digital Asylum too, very glad I signed up.
I thought E-Sylum readers might be interested in this forthcoming release, which ties in with the Numismatic Association of Australia's 2017 Conference in Melbourne next month.
Respected Australian Numismatist, Peter Lane, is to launch his new book, The Coin Cabinet: A cultural history of the numismatic collection in the Art Gallery of South Australia at the
forthcoming NAAC2017 in Melbourne. Peter is Honorary Numismatist at the AGSA in Adelaide and has been working on this book for many years. Edited by Walter Bloom, Honorary Numismatist at the WA
Museum in Perth, it's great to see this work finally published. It's a hardcover 215 page publication of A4 size, with over 200 colour illustrations. As the title suggests it is a publication on
numismatic cultural history and not a catalogue. The book will be available for viewing at the NAAC2017 Reception, to be held at the RACV Club on the evening of Friday 20 October. Registration for
NAAC2017 is open until the 30th September.
It sounds like a wonderful book. The history of collectors and collecting is fascinating, and really helps bring collections and institutions to life. We'll look forward to the
book's publication. -Editor
