Predominately correspondence between an ANS curator, secretary, or other representative and various printing companies regarding the printing of works published in the Society’s Numismatic Notes and Monographs series, the ANS’s forum for presenting numismatic scholarship that was established in 1920 with an initial sponsorship from Archer M. Huntington of $100,000. Not all of the publications in the series are represented in the records. Includes items relating to the production of the Society’s annual Proceedings, which prior to this time had been printed by the American Numismatic Association but for the years 1920 to the 1936 (printed in 1921 and 1937) were part of the Numismatic Notes and Monographs series. The principal firm used for the printing was T.R. Marvin & Son of Boston, and much of the correspondence is with George R. Marvin. Others firms involved in the work include The De Vinne Press and J.C. & W.E. Powers of New York City, Patterson & White of Philadelphia, and Lancaster Press of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Much of the correspondence has to do with technical matters such as difficulties arising from the printing of special characters as well as issues relating to correcting page proofs. Also includes two files (1920-1924 & 1920-1926) and an oversized notebook (1920-1935) containing printing and other production costs, print runs, sales price, and other information.
