I came across ANS Numismatic Notes and Monograms No. 101, A Numismatic Bibliography of the Far East, by Howard Franklin Bowker in my library. Don't you think his first name has a nice ring to it? I remember his name being associated with East Asian numismatics but not my area of Southeast Asia. I started looking at the Subject Index and was happily surprised to find Cambodia, and other Southeast Asian countries.
I am into the last stages of my research for my next catalog, which will cover Cambodia from the 16th century to date. Bowker's Subject Index is for dealer's catalogues and has thirteen (13) for Cambodia. They are as follows;
C7. Bourgey, E., A. Salles Coll., Paris, July 1, 1929.
C9. Chapman, H., G.H. Earle Coll., Phila. June 25, 1912.
C12. Ciani, M.L., M. Chatillion, Paris, May 24, 1933.
C15. Elder, T., J.B. Wilson Coll., N.Y., Oct. 5, 1908.
C21. Frossard, E., N.Y., Nov, 25, 1882.
C25. Glendining and Co., London, May 27, 1936.
C28. Haseltine, J.W., S.W. Chubbuck Coll., N.Y., Feb 25, 1873.
C32. Low, L.H., W. Cutting Coll., N.Y., May 23, 1898.
C46. Schulman, J., V. Bergsoe Coll., Pt. 1., Amsterdam, April 14, 1903.
C50. ---------------, Lord Grantley Coll., Amsterdam, Dec. 12, 1921.
C54. ---------------, O. Leonardos Coll., Amsterdam, Jan 24, 1929.
C67. Stack's, N.Y., June 3 & 10, 1939.
C70. Weyl, A., Berlin, June 9, 1879.
If any readers have these catalogues in their library, please scan the lot description(s) and possible images, and email them to me at HADANIEL3@MSN.COM. If needed, I will pay for all costs.
Bowker doesn't provide specific lot numbers, unfortunately, but locating Cambodian ought to stand out. There are likely to be only one or two pieces, especially in the older sale catalogs.
