A bit more blogrolling, and Newton and the Counterfeiter’s latest notice
More self aggrandizement, and a pointer. PhiloBiblos aka Jeremy Dibbell has just posted a very nice brief review of Newton and the Counterfeiter (Amazon, Powells, Barnes and Noble, Indiebound) at his book-loving blog, now to be found on the blogroll at left.
It’s the kind of story that would make a good novel, but which written by the right person works even better as history.
Touring through Dibbell’s other posts, I found many delights, including this one which pointed me here, which then led to Thomas Jefferson’s reading list…which forced me to add J. L. Bell’s Boston 1775 to my blogroll. Bell writes on the roots of the American Revolution in my current meatspace domicile, aka the Hub of the Universe, Athens of America, Somerville’s neighbor….Boston.
