KOLBE NUMISMATIC LITERATURE SALE #102 ANNOUNCED

George Kolbe writes: "On March 15, 2007, George Frederick Kolbe/Fine
Numismatic Books will conduct their 102nd sale of rare and out of
print numismatic literature. Featured are 707 lots on a great variety
of topics, written in many different languages and dating from the
middle of the sixteenth century to the present. The sale is particularly
rich in rare and unusual books, periodicals, and catalogues on American
numismatics, along with standard works on ancient numismatics, and a
fine collection of numismatic books printed before 1800 from the library
of Myron Xenos. Catalogues may be ordered by sending $15.00 to Kolbe at
P. O. Drawer 3100, Crestline, CA 92325 or the catalogue is accessible
free of charge at the firm’s web site (www.numislit.com).

Some sale highlights include: a delightfully illustrated early nineteenth
century manuscript on the Coinage of England; a mint example of the first
Stack’s sale, issued in 1935; near mint copies of several early American
Numismatic Association auction sale catalogues; two extensive runs of the
American Journal of Numismatics; a heavily illustrated 1913 Cuban guide
to the coins and paper money of all nations; a very fine example of
Charles Pye’s 1795 work on Conder tokens; the 1559 first edition of
Erizzo’s Medaglie Antiche, with over 500 woodcut illustrations of ancient
coins; rare United States Coin Company catalogues; a good selection of
Heath counterfeit detectors; a set of The Shekel; the “revised” edition
of Newlin’s rare work on United States half dimes; Nunn’s Numismatic
Magazine, the inspiration for The Numismatist and the American Numismatic
Publication; the 1864 first American auction catalogue accompanied by a
printed list of buyers’ names; a complete set of Davenport works on
crowns, along with allied publications; Q. David Bowers’ now elusive
work on silver dollars; and many other interesting and important works."
