Freeman & Sear is pleased to announce a special book e-auction, running from now until November 5th. You may view and bid on lots at:
Our current sale comprises 321 individual and group lots of numismatic literature on the coins of ancient Greece and Rome, the Bible, medieval and early modern Europe, India, and America as well as books on ancient art, history, and numismatic collecting. Among the volumes are essential works including Spink's Roman Imperial Coinage, Alberto Banti¹s Corpus Nummorum and Grandi Bronzi Imperiali, issues of the American Numismatic Society's Numismatic Notes and Monographs, and a large offering of Sylloges of Coins of the British Isles.
Some not-to-be-missed highlights of the collection being offered are a complete, fine edition of Ernest Babelon's Traité des Monnaies Grecques et Romaines (lot 16); a complete, very fine Forni reprint of the Catalogue of the Greek Coins in the British Museum (lot 68); Van Arsdell's out-of-print and highly demanded Celtic Coinage of Britain (lot 39); a Guy Genard reprint of Engel and Lehr's rare but definitive tome, Numismatique de L'Alsace (lot 163); and several works on the coinage of Spain and the Visigoths (lots 269-272). Also of note are several antiquarian books: Wilhelm Ernst Tenzel's 1705 Saxonia Numismatica Lineae Albertinae and Saxonia Numismatica Lineae Ernestinae, with elaborate and wonderful engraved frontispieces (lots 129 and 130); and Samuel Pegge's 1772 Assemblage of Coins Fabricated by Authority of the Archbishops of Canterbury (lot 128).
Whether beginning to put together your numismatic library with standard classics or searching for that elusive volume to complete your collection, you may find just what you are looking for in our book auction. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org .
