CONGER. To conger; the agreement of a set or knot of booksellers of London, that whosoever of them shall buy a good copy, the rest shall take off such a particular number, in quires, at a stated price; also booksellers joining to buy either a considerable or dangerous copy.

    There are more than 180,000 historical markers throughout America, and many of them tell only partial truths. Over the past year, NPR has analyzed crowdsourced data to uncover some of those errors. Many were strange, funny or silly — like a sign that marks the home of a world-famous Santa Claus school in Albion, New York, and a marker in Arizona that pays tribute to a donkey that drank beer. But many paint a fractured version of history: 70% of markers that mention plantations do not mention slavery, and there are 500 markers that describe the Confederacy in glowing terms. Here's more.

    It's called revisionism, and it's the rule and not the exception. The tug-of-war fought over Wikipedia articles is a microcosm.

    BO-PEEP. One who sometimes hides himself, and sometimes appears publicly abroad, is said to-play at bo-peep. Also one who lies perdue, or on the watch.

    needs your help! Bartmann / Bellarmine jugs were made in a very specific region of the rhineland between 1500 -1750 to be exported to England & the Netherlands. With colonial expansion they've found there way across the globe. Now an international research projects seeks to establish a comprehensive history & typology of the jugs. So if you have seen one of those shown in the Wanted Foto attached, get in touch with the researchers!

    @Tinido @histodons As a matter of fact I have seen some!

    The Western Australian Shipwreck Museum has some Beardmun jugs (and fragments of them) found mostly from the Batavia and Vergulde Draeck shipwrecks. These ones were made in Frechen. Their full database of them: https://museum.wa.gov.au/maritime-archaeology-db/artefacts/search/beardman

    The below photo is artefact GT837: https://museum.wa.gov.au/maritime-archaeology-db/artefacts/gt837-stoneware

    I'll send them an email!

    We haven't yet had anyone guess this week's , it must be a tricky one! It's a worn, but nicely decorative piece, but from where?

    Let us know! And don't forget to subscribe to the Coin of Note Newsletter, as it's due out this week with the answer: https://coinofnote.com/newsletter

    @tkinias @tlariv @alexf24 @numismatics @histodons definitely, like the blue and gold dress illusion a couple years ago. I try to bring it the details in coins but sometimes it affects the color. The 1949 Portugal 20 Centavos is another one which looks a bit silver in my pic although that one is bronze. I'll try to keep the colors more natural!

    As per the boost of @phistorians's post, today is the traditional date celebrated as the founding of Rome by Remus and Romulus, raised by a she-wolf and pictured on this coin issued by Constantine I (the Great) in 333-334 A.D. (Roma on obverse). Minted in Treveri (Germany), if I'd thought of the date when planning this weekend's posts I probably would have written it up for today.

    I never realized how close the Kurils are to Japan. Leaving aside, y’know, all of Russian and Japanese history prior to 1945, no wonder the Americans were so keen on becoming friends with Japan after the war.

    Even if we definitely should have insisted on more trials of murderers and criminals like Shiro Ishii.

    COCK OF THE COMPANY. A weak man, who from the desire of being the head of the company associates with low people, and pays all the reckoning.

    One fact you might not know about : he was a Republican. Millions of Blacks were also Republicans at the time. Robinson even endorsed Nixon in the election of 1960. But by 1968, Robinson was done with the GOP.

    YUUUUUP. It was President Lyndon Johnson upon signing the Equal Rights Amendment in 1968 who quipped "We (Democrats) have lost the south for a generation."

    He was right. They all became Republicans.

    This is how they became what they are now.

    The Path to Power
    by
    Robert A Caro

    This masterpiece is part I of the biography of Lyndon B Johnson. At first I dreaded its 800 pages, but it reads like a novel. It's a highly engaging look behind the scenes, both politically and psychologically.

    I was fascinated by Johnson's genius for organizing people and money. Step by step he planned his road to presidency. He succeeded by working relentlessly, by tremendous political talent and by sometimes questionable tactics.
