MONOGRAPHS. [Burton] Coins of the Ancient World. Illustrated from the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Irving Frederick Burton. The Detroit Institute of Arts.

A note from BCD: This is a catalogue of an exhibition of ancient coins from a private collection of a pair of amateurs. No. 11 is probably (but not certainly, as only the obverse is shown) a coin of Neapolis in Northern Greece and not of Parium. The modesty of Dr. and Mrs. Burton did not allow them to write anything about themselves as collectors. It would be interesting if one could find a copy of the ”Bulletin of the Detroit Institute of Arts” and read Dr. Burton’s article on ”Collecting Ancient Coins”. Perhaps, there, we could find out more about this intriguing couple.
