by Dekesel, Christian Edmond.
First edition. The second part of Dekesel's Bibliotheca Nummaria. The first volume, a bibliography of 16th century numismatic books, was contained in one volume. As evidence of the field's expansion, this second volume, covering 17th century publications, is a three book set. With listings for 2825 numismatic publications, each of which was personally located and most are illustrated with its title page. Extensive references to the holdings of hundreds of libraries. Each work is also ranked by numismatic relevance and assigned to one of twelve categories. Among these categories are catalogues of auctions of coins and numismatic books, coin-books used by money-changers, moral and religous dissertations on the abuse of money, and travel books with numismatic content. With foreword by A.M. Burnett, Keeper of Coins and Medals at the British Museum.
