MONOGRAPHS. [Caputi] Catalogo di Una Raccolta Numismatica contenente Monete Greche, Primitive d’Italia, Consolari o di Famiglia, Imperiali romane, Urbiche, Medioevali, Pontificie e Moderne, Estere, Medaglie e Piombi (tessere), etc. appartenente al Dottor Cesare Caputi. Velletri/Rome 1890. 8vo (17.5x24cm), full brown leather with dark brown spine letters; 158 pages. Original cover, mounted, bound in. Last two pages repaired. Good.
A note from BCD: It is quite interesting to read in the beginning of the catalogue that this collection (of well over 2000 pieces) is to be sold as one lot, that there is no guarantee of authenticity or quality and that any claims should be made within fifteen days of the sale. One wonders what the procedure would be if one or more coins would turn out to be forgeries. Would the entire transaction be reversed and if not, what part of the total value would the forgeries command?
