Folio, pp. (4), 135, (1), five-page index at end. In contemoporary cloth backed boards, the spine lettered in gilt. With a neat library label, likely that of Jacob Hirsch, attached to the spine. Somewhat rubbed and worn, the edges bumped but internally clean. An important catalogue, listing a total of 12,480 coins, very seldom offered.

The first two volumes list the vast Santangelo collection, with volume one (here) listing the Greek coins and the second volume concentrating on the medieval series. Babelon p. 165, “7,236 are from Italy, 2,586 from Sicily, and 2,615 from other parts of the ancient world.” Clain-Stefanelli 1894. Daehn 1865.
