One could probablly do old catalogs relatively easily, especially if there's no need to make the text searchable, just page after page.

 

For newer stuff, like anything else, copyright law can be a pain especially when the holders are long gone.

 

Sometimes I wonder if having the Numismatisst Vol.1-6 be downloadbale could be offset by Google ad revenue. Probably not by itsself, but downloadable scanned material might be content that would draw more traffic.

It's going to be a matter of time when such "jpg" texts can be text searchable. *Horror* but not impossible. It would be neat if such old catalogue books are viewable online. You can't just possibly buy them any longer!!!

 

You mean like this: http://catalogs.google.com/catalogs?q=coin...Search+Catalogs

 

Yes... google... again. They are quite Ninja :ninja:

Yes like that, but with a better interface :ninja:

 

For me some ancient catalogs from the 40's and 50's woule be great to see.

 

The stuff from the last 5 years or so is mostly online allready and pdf's can be downloaded from the dealer's sites.

Some interesting articles I came across, thought I might as well share. They are some high level academic materials and I honestly struggled to go through the whole material ;)

 

Do read them when you have time, it has quite a fair bit of interesting articles in it. ;)

Interesting stuff, I recognize some of the things from NIM-B. Manfred Schreiner also did analysy on some the the Sasanian coins in the new SNS put out by the Akademie in Vienna. He's also done other testing.

 

It does appear that this site is violating the international copyright laws however :ninja: . I know I have to pay about $30 to get access to the NIM-B articles and most of the articles appear recent and it seems doubtful the web host acquired free redistribution rights.

You will find 23 books online here, including two by Babelon and one by Cohen.

(I mentioned them in my Internet Connections column this past April and took me a while to hack through the archives. I should have mentioned them in Post 1.)

A link for the Numismatic Periodicals Index. The Index is online but alas, the titles tend not to be. :ninja:

Still a good way to find articles that may interest you in the future.

Thank you, John Hooker, and welcome to the Forum and to Coin People.

 

I printed out the homepage of your website and I will find a way to work it into my monthly column for Numismatist magazine.

Edward J. Waddell created an online presentation of Svoronos's Ptolemaic Coinage. Originally published in Greek (Ta Nomismata tou Kratous ton Ptolemaion), this version has a translation by Catherine Lorber.

 

Click on Svoronos' Ptolemaic .

Pretty neat! Thanks for the pointer. I printed off a couple of pages as a reminder and put it in the folder for 2006 Topics for my ANA column.

Here is a link for numismatic literature published by the ANS. LINK

 

Here is one for Project Gutenberg - LINK Now you may not think this would be related to numismatics at first glance, but it is. The amount of history and the information about key people that can be found in the books on this site is astounding. It is also searchable :ninja:

Thanks for that link. I've been looking for a place that has "The Classics" in online form so that after I read a work in book form I can have an easy way to cut and paste excerpts related to things I care about.

  Here is one for Project Gutenberg ...

 

Thanks for the link! I put it into my Favorites folder

 

If found nothing right away for "numismatic" or 'numismatics" but I did find this searching for COIN:

 

Lives of the Most Remarkable Criminals Who have been Condemned and Executed for Murder, the Highway, Housebreaking, Street Robberies, Coining or other offences (

Collected from Original Papers and Authentic Memoirs, and Published in

1735 EDITED BY ARTHUR L. HAYWARD NEW YORK 1927).

 

You can search the text. So, I looked for "counterfeit."
