Numismatic Book Collecting
Jonathan Kagan & David Hill
November 18, 2017 | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
$30 for members / $50 for nonmembers
In the age of the internet, most older books, including numismatic books, are available online thanks to initiatives of the Bibliothèque de France, the Newman Numismatic Portal and many other platforms. What does this mean for collectors of physical books and other historical records? Jonathan Kagan, who has collected rare numismatic books for the last 40 years, and David Hill, archivist and librarian for the ANS, will examine the notion of collectible books and manuscripts and consider their place in private and public collections. Examples from the Kagan and ANS Libraries will be at hand for inspection.

Money Talks: Numismatic Conversations is supported by an ANS endowment fund generously given in honor of Dr. Vladimir Clain-Stefanelli and Mrs. Elvira Clain-Stefanelli.
