[Sartiges.] Longuet, D. A. Collection du Vicomte de Sartiges. Séries grecque et romaine en 1910 ainsi que les acquisitions depuis cette date. Paris, no date (1910). 4to., pp. (2), 48 pages of descriptive text printed to accompany the 48 fine plates of coins all printed on thick card. In the original green cloth folder with the red morocco title label on the upper cover, lettered in gilt and with the original green ties. Extremities dusty and rubbed with some discolouration, the joints weak and the plates lightly thumbed but mostly clean. A very good set of the preferred and rarely encountered later edition of this work, complete with the five additional plates not included in the first printing. Produced in very small number for private distribution only and rare thus.
A wonderful collection consisting of 391 and 550 exceptional Greek and Roman coins. The Greek were sold by private treaty, whilst the Roman coins were sold in the final Ars Classica sale.
