MONOGRAPHS. Cousinéry, É. Essai historique et critique sur les monnaies d’argent de la Ligue Achéenne, accompagné de recherches sur les monnaies de Corinthe, de Sicyone et de Carthage. Paris 1825. Large 8vo (21x26.5cm), full tan leather with dark brown spine letters; 192 pages, 2 + 5 plates. Some staining to spine. Interior Very Good. Lipsius p. 29
A note from BCD: This book may appear to deal only with the Achaean League silver but in fact extends its tenuous arguments into the areas of the Corinthian Colonies and Sicyon. We should not expect any up to date scholarship but the etchings are surprisingly accurate giving a fleeting aura of legitimacy to the book. A book for the collector who likes to travel back in time.
