MONOGRAPHS. [de Magnoncour and Baron Behr] de Longpérier, Adrien. Description des Médailles du Cabinet de M. de Magnoncour. Paris 1840. 139 pages, 2 engraved plates. Bound with: Lenormant, François. Description des Médailles et Antiquités composant le Cabinet de M. le Baron Behr, Ancien Ministre de Belgique a Constantinople. Paris 1857. 229 pages, 3 engraved plates. 8vo (17x25cm), full tan leather with dark brown spine letters, raised bands, original card covers (repaired) bound in. Foxed throughout. Good.
A note from BCD: The very last leaf of this specially bound volume says it all: Two collections bound together and enriched by a three-page letter signed by Adrien de Longpérier himself. In spite of the foxing, the five plates of etchings are not only works of art but very useful as they accurately depict some very rare coins.
