[Babelon, E.] Morgan, J. de, Traité des monnaies grecques et romaines. III. Monnaies orientales. Tome I. Numismatique de la Perse antique. Paris, 1927–33. Five parts (three fascicules) bound into two volumes. 4to., pp. vi, (2), 738, 2 folding genealogical tables; 111, (1); 76 superb plates, 2 folding. Both volumes attractively bound in recent chestnut half morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, the spines lettered direct in gilt with decorative endpapers throughout. Little used and virtually as new. Also from the library of Piero Peradotto with his charming ex-libris on the front pastedown of each volume. Very fine and scarce thus. (2)
The rarely seen final section of Babelon’s famous Traité dedicated to ancient Persian coins. Written by De Morgan but published after both his and Babelon’s death in 1924. Clain-Stefanelli 3067*. Grierson p. 90, “Ouvrage essential, bien qu’il soit souvent inexact dans les details.”
