LANDMARK NUMISMATIC LITERATURE

The previous question about Photograde brings to mind
a more general topic for discussion: landmark literature
in numismatics.  Which books or catalogs caused such a
stir at their issuance that they changed the hobby landscape
forever?  Here in the U.S., each major modern grading guide
could probably fit in that category (Brown & Dunn, Photograde,
ANA Grading Guide).  Among U.S. titles published in the 19th
century, Dickeson's Numismatic Manual and Heaton's book on
Mint Marks are probably sure-fire nominees.  What do our
readers think?  What publications would you nominate for a
list of landmark numismatic works?
