    The Asylum, Fall 1994

    1/10/1994

    Highlight: While the present-day numismatist will wince at the thought of duplicate Cogan sales. No fewer than five pre-1860 catalogs are offered, including the very rare Flandin & Kline Sales of 1855 (see Printer's Devil in The Asylum, Volume XI: 3). Among the other highlights were the Morse Sale (I860), the sale of Attinelli's personal collection (1863), an extremely rare Broadside from Thomas & Sons (1864), and a series of 26 priced Edward Cogan Sales, ranging from 1873 to 1879. The last 30 lots in this section were reserved for illustrated and thick-paper

    The Asylum, Winter 2003

    1/1/2003

    Highlight: John Adams' wonderful set of The Numismatist brought the highest price ($33,000) but the sale of lot 206 (unique manuscripts of Edward Cogan sales 1, 2 & 4) was probably the most exciting to those present. Estimated at $1,000, it opened at $700, though we had a $2,000 commission bid. A strong floor bidder and the two telephone bidders engaged in rapid-fire bidding but the lot ended up opening three times before it was finally hammered down at $8,000. 1 was going pell-mell between the floor bidder and the telephone bidders, and one of the latter, Armand Champa, withdrew his second-high bid twice and asked that the lot be re-opened. 1 don't think he believed that there was anyone out there who would pay more than he would for the lot, and 1 kept calling the bids so rapidly that I'm sure it

    Highlight: Numismatic bibliopole Charles Davis reprinted the first four Cogan sales in 1994, but as he limited his reprint to an additional 25 copies, they remain difficult to find. 13 Cogan’ s second sale, held March 7-13, 1859, 14 was of the collection of New York bookseller Charles B. Foote. The 273 lots included a number of colonial coins and Washington pieces. Some of the highlights included a 1785 Immune Columbia piece that brought $10 and a 1787 Immunis Columbia that sold for $7.50 (unfortunately, there is no record of who bought the coins in the Attinelli printing of this sale, nor is there any further information given on the varieties of these pieces). A 1792 Washington cent took top honors, selling at $15. A collection of Connecticut coppers, consisting of 41 varieties, was sold as one lot

    Highlight: copies of Cogan sales 2 and 3 would have been in his A/N list' ing and they were not. No, the person who created the special editions was someone who would do a similarly spotty )ob of distributing a book he wrote; some' one that did not join a numismatic organisation until his collecting days were over; 16 and someone who did not decide to go to medical school until in his fifties. For a person who made a vital, lasting contribution to numismatic bibliography, Attinelli was eccentric to say the least. For those who require proof that is less circumstantial, we offer his own words: “a few copies were privately printed, 5 on plain paper, and 25 on note paper, of which there have been destroyed 18 copies of the latter.” 17 Who but the perpetrator could have counted?

Lot 925 comprised a complete set (42) of the sale addendas privately printed for Attinelli, of which only seven complete sets were issued. Glad to see The Asylum coming again. David Hirt Editor's Note Our thanks to all who have sent com- plimentary comments. Our favorite, re- ceived from Pete Smith, follows: “Con- gratulations for a fine inaugural issue as editor of The Asylum. Of course, after a long wait, anything would have been wel- come.” In truth, the contributors are respon- sible for the quality of The Asylum. While this combined issue brings us back on schedule, hardly any articles are on hand for the next issue, to be issued in early 1997. Please help.

    1/10/1996

    Highlight: A seven volume set of Cogan sales, 1858-1885, including several ex- tremely rare early sales is another highlight of the library. Edward Cogan has often been called "the father of the coin trade in America." He began dealing in coins in 1855 in Philadelphia and conducted his first auction in 1859. Cogan's first four sales were conducted at his store with only a hand- written manuscript of the catalogue available for reference. Eventually, re- prints were issued for the four sales, but only 25 copies were made of three of them. Cogan also issued the first auction sale catalogue in the United States containing photographic illustrations of the coins to be sold: the fa- mous Mortimer MacKenzie sale, held on June 23rd, 1869. A complete set of the American Journal of Numismatics, 1866-1924, is

    Highlight: The earlier two were also Cogan sales: his 1869 sale of the Mortimer Mackenzie collection and his sale the following year of material from the John Allan estate. The illustrated version of the Montreal catalogue is not advertised in the unillustrated version, and it is not known to the present writer if Cogan simply sent the illustrated version to prominent clients or whether he advertised their availability in some other way. The plated catalogue is about as common as early plated sales get, and is seen nearly as often as the unplated version. The owner of the collection being offered is not identified in the catalogue and has been a matter of some debate over the years. Early bib' liographer Emmanuel J.
