The Stephen Album Rare Coins Auction 34 includes an important offering of numismatic literature. Here's a press release with more information.
200 Lots of Numismatic Literature Featured
in Stephen Album Auction 34
There will be 200 lots of numismatic literature offered in an internet session
in Stephen Album Rare Coins' upcoming Auction 34. The scope of the offerings is
vast, with starting bids ranging from $10 to $600. The firm has included literature
in past auctions, but this is by far the largest grouping offered thus far.
The lots are listed alphabetically for easy browsing, and each book is described
extensively. The titles listed should appeal to beginning collectors, advanced
collectors, and to professional coin dealers looking to expand their libraries.
One notable lot is Lot 2827, Compendio de Las Piezas de Ocho Reales; Volume I & II,
by author Gabriel Calbeto de Grau:
Published in San Juan, Puerto Rico, this two volume set is regarded by many as the
definitive guide to eight reales. It catalogs virtually every eight real coin ever
minted and is richly illustrated with hundreds of photographs. This hardcover edition,
with blue decorated cloth binding, has text in both English and Spanish.
Volume One is a comprehensive study of the Eight Reales of Spain, Mexico, Central America,
and South America, an index of the rulers of the time period, and a listing of mints in
alphabetical order, and is profusely illustrated.
Volume Two is a comprehensive continuation of the mints, and a brief numismatic
history of the rulers from Ferdinand and Isabella (1474-1505) to Alfonso XIII (1886-1931).
The live internet session takes place on Sunday, May 26th. Pre-sale bids can also be placed
up until the start of the live internet session. Early registration is strongly encouraged.
