Paris: Rollin et Feuardent (1902). 8vo. 32 plates.
A quite rare catalog of coins and medals donated by Carlos de Beistegui to the French state. Beistegui assembled another collection later in life, also donated to the French state.
Very good in original wrappers, light wear, uncut.
A rare publication comprised of the relevant portion of the 1902 Rollin & Feuardent sale catalogue of Meyer’s fine collection of French coins, combined with a long preface. The Avant-Propos details de Bestegui’s acquisition en bloc of this outstanding collection of 717 coins and 428 medals of Alsace, a particular specialty of Meyer’s, shortly before the sale date, and its subsequent donation to the Bibliothèque Nationale.
