Berry, Burton Y. A NUMISMATIC BIOGRAPHY. Lucerne, 1971. First edition. 4to, original pictorial card covers. 89, (1) pages; illustrations of both sides of 527 ancient Greek coins and occasional enlargements. A few scuffs to covers, else fine. Daehn 1329. Kroh 11: “a very unusual catalogue indeed, as the author presents some 527 mostly superb ancient Greek coins from his collection (all illustrated with exceptional photos and enlargements), but does not present a catalogue of them as such. Instead he wrote it as an introduction to the series and accompanies the illustrations with narrative accounts on how he became bitten by the ‘coin-bug’ and historical vignettes of the cities that struck the coins illustrated.” Ex RBW Library.
