Some slight dampstain and brownings. Good copy with wide margins and uncut. First and only edition of this uncommon monograph that describes and illustrates the coins of Capua components of the collation of the historian Francesco Daniele. Cf. Cicognara (2818): "Le copiose monete intagliate, e stampate fra il testo della opera sono eseguite con estrema accuratezza. In fine un discorso sul culto di Giove, di Diana, e di Ercole presso i Campani, e un commentario del Mazzocchi sulla legge Pagana dell'agro Ercolanense". Francesco Daniele, historian, scholar and archaeologist, animator of the Ercolanese Academy, wrote several archaeological memories and succeeded Giambattista Vico in the post of historiographer of the King of Naples.

Bound with: ASSEMANI, Simone. Spiegazione di due rarissime medaglie cufiche della famiglia degli Ommiadi appartenenti al Museo Majnoni in Milano.Milano, Dalla Tipografia de' costumi antichi e moderni del dottore Giulio Ferrario, 1818

Pp. [9]. Vignette with arabic characters on titlepage. The name of the author Assemani Simone from the repertoires. Cfr. Karlsruhe Virtual Catalog. Traces of humidity on the upper margin of pages. First edition. In 1818, the orientalist and numismatic Assemani, known as authority on Cufic coins through his "Museo Cufico Naniano", published his "Spiegazione", a discussion of two rare Cufic coins in the collection of Stefano de Majnoni. Subsequently, Majnoni called Assemani to identify several additional coins and in 1820 asked him to check a catalog of his collection, compiled by Giuseppe Schiepati.

Bound with: CASTIGLIONI, Carlo Ottavio. Osservazioni sull'opera intitolata Descrizione di alcune monete cufiche del Museo Mainoni.Milano, dalla stamperia di Antonio Lamperti, P. Vercellina, Nirone S. Francesco, N. 2797, 1821

4to, 260x195 mm. Pp. 15. The name of author, Carlo Ottavio Castiglioni, on p. 15. Nice copy with wide margins.

First edition. An interesting brochure of the numismatic Castiglione, drawn up to defend the plagiarism realized by Schiepati, which copied the results of the Castiglioni studies on Cufic coins. These results were reported in a work written by him, but not yet published: "Monete cufiche dell'I. R. Museo di Milano". In this book in defense of his work, the author claims that the "glasses" were not coins, but "weights" used to verify the weight of the coins.

Pp. 27, [1]. 5 plates engraved on copper o. t. and drawned by Antonio Russo. Nice copy.
