The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is a video tour of the NAC USA numismatic library. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
Newman Portal Adds Video Tour of the Numismatic Library at the Offices of NAC USA
Opened this year in Chicago, the offices of NAC USA host an important and rapidly growing library maintained by Shanna Schmidt and NAC employee Tyler Rossi. Overlooking Michigan Avenue, Millenium Park and Lake Michigan in Chicago, the views may well be the most dramatic of any such library in the country. Newman Portal has recently produced a video of the library, which debuted at the Numismatic Bibliomania Society meeting held at the ANA convention in Pittsburgh.
The library focuses on ancient numismatics but includes substantial American content, such as the Harry W. Bass copy of The Numismatist (1888), which is easily among the finest known examples. Other items featured in the video include Haeberlin's Aes Grave (1910), Dattari's Monette Imperiali Greche (1901), and bid books from Felix Schlesinger's sales (1933-1935) of material from the Hermitage. Newman Portal acknowledges Shanna Schmidt for facilitating our visit and Lianna Spurrier for producing this video.
