Pinkerton, John. AN ESSAY ON MEDALS: OR, AN INTRODUCTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF ANCIENT AND MODERN COINS AND MEDALS; ESPECIALLY THOSE OF GREECE, ROME, AND BRITAIN. Third edition. London, 1808. Two volumes. 8vo, original plain boards; printed spine labels. xliv, (4), 376; (8), 448, (18) pages; 3 + 3 plates. Bindings a bit dusty and rubbed. Largely unopened. Near fine. Pinkerton's popular work, in its original state. Still of interest today.
