A stylish and well organized catalogue of New York material. Illustrated with an impressive index which is very helpful to the reader.

This is a wonderful book for NY scrip.

I just wish someone would come out with a book on NY obsoletes. I know it would be a monumental task, but Wolka did it for Ohio.

The Wismer NY book was OK for its time. Haxby is really the only book available for NY obsoletes.

Yes, I agree. It's truly amazing to me that nobody has recognized the need for that reference tome and acted to fill it.

On the other hand, as you suggested it would be a monumental effort. Maybe several people have started the effort but never got close enough to the end to publish. How many years would it take? How much money? The size of the effort staggers me.

There IS someone nominally working on this (in England of all places); has been for years as part of SPMC's Wismer Update series (his name escapes me). Not sure if it will ever be completed though. NY and a revised PA may be the only states that would be more challenging than Ohio to complete but it could be done. Someone with access to the state archives and libraries in NY would have a definite advantage.

My gut tells me there's a lot more NY scrip out there, but I could be wrong.
