A group of 8 plated Chapmans include a near mint H.P. Smith, an absolutely mint Wilson, and a rare Taylor-Windle. The Davisson library contains all three editions of Pye, two of Condor, and the rare Sharp Chetwynd. Also included are a 1913 interleaved Adams & Woodin, near complete Essay Proof Journal lacking but a single issue, and a set of the rare Greco plates of Massachusetts copper with even rarer text.

The catalogue will be posted at www.vcoins.com/ancient/charlesdavis and will be available at the Philadelphia Whitman show which starts September 30. As with our last sale, we plan to have several hundred of the lots illustrated on the web site as well.
