Vienna 1762. 12 + 296 + 8 pages, frontis + 30 engraved plates. Bound with C[h]ristiani, A. C. Adpendicula ad Numismata Graeca Populorum et Urbium a Iacobo Gesnero. Vienna 1762. 80 pages, 2 engraved plates plus an additional 29 pages of ‘Materia testaminis publici’ by Christiani. 8vo (17.5x22.5cm), full brown-green leather with dark brown spine letters. Very Good. Lipsius pp. 178 and 83, respectively
A note from BCD: The Latin text may alienate some younger readers but they will be amply rewarded by the charm and interest of the 32 engraved plates. Some of the drawings could provide a lot of enjoyment when researched and compared with later photographs of the same coins.
