Important Volumes on Ancient Numismatics Will Soon Be Freely Available Online

The Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) and the S&S Library announce an initiative to digitize over 6,000 volumes from the S&S Library, which is primarily focused on ancient numismatics.

“We are excited to expand the scope of our content to include world and ancient numismatics,” said NNP Project Coordinator Len Augsburger. Shanna Schmidt, a partner in S&S Library, LLC noted “The literature of numismatics began with ancient coins, and the appreciation of all numismatics will be enhanced by knowledge of our earliest coins. We are pleased to partner with Newman Portal on the broad scale digitization of the literature related to ancient numismatics.”

The S&S Library, housed in Chicago, is jointly owned by Shanna Schmidt Numismatics and a leading, U.S.-based collector in the field of classical and ancient numismatics. The library includes core holdings in all fields of numismatics, with a concentration on literature related to ancient coinage. Library highlights includes E. J. Haeberlin’s Aes Grave (1910), Dattari’s Monete Imperiali Greche (1901), and the first six volumes of The Numismatist (1888-1893), one of perhaps ten copies in private hands.

The S&S Library, housed in Chicago, is maintained by Shanna Schmidt.

The Newman Numismatic Portal is sponsored by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society and administered through Olin Library at Washington University in St Louis. Launched in 2016, the NNP provides online access to over 70,000 numismatic documents, comprising over 5 million pages. Online access is of course limited to books out of copyright.

The collection is especially strong in the areas of U.S. auction sale catalogs, periodicals, and U.S. Mint material from the National Archives. In addition, the NNP serves as the online repository for the Eric P. Newman numismatic research papers and correspondence files.
