Condition Report

First edition of this collection, made up of Greek and Roman coins of the Republican and imperial age, but mostly a considerable documentation of the production of Italian mints from the communal age, to the coinage of noblemen, up to the papal issues contemporary to him. The scholar from Ferrara gave a decisive impulse to the studies on the medieval coin, collected in this volume, until then neglected because of the predominant interest in classicism.
