At Amazon.com and other websites reprints are offered of certain early volumes of Numismatic Chronicle, the journal of the Royal Numismatic Society. The full title is given as The Numismatic Chronicle And Journal Of The [Royal] Numismatic Society. ("Royal" is omitted from volumes issued before the Society received its royal charter and consequently its present name.)
Current offerings on Amazon.com are the volume (number not given) for 1872, "V17" (for 1897), Volume VII (year not given), Volume XIII (1913), and Volume XIV (year not given). I'm guessing that VII is for 1907 and XIV is for 1914, but the volume numbers for this journal aren't unique: there were several issue series of the original volumes, in each of which for some reason (I suppose) the numbering of volumes or issues was begun afresh from 1.
I'm wondering whether to buy these to help to fill gaps in my collection. If anybody has seen these reprints, I'd be most interested in any comments on the quality of reproduction.
