Ancient Numismatic Auction Catalogues 1880-1980 by Spring, J. 

Hardback, large format, xxi + 349 pages, including tables and index. Attractively illustrated throughout with black and white photographs.

 This listing of 886 ancient coin auction catalogues aims to include every important sale of ancient coins which took place between 1 January 1880 and 31 December 1980, a period of 101 years. Every catalogue is described by size and colour and number of plates. The main listing is preceded by a summary list of 886 sales, in which basic information is given on a single line, and there is an extensive index of about 950 vendor names.

Photographs and short biographies are included for many auctioneers and vendors. Tables are given for the "most important" sales of Celtic, ancient Greek, aes grave, struck Roman Republican, Roman Imperial, Roman Provincial and Byzantine coins, and coins of the barbarian migrations and of ancient Spain, based on counts of the number of plates. Author does not include information about quality of coins included in each catalogue. A must reference for any serious collector of auction catalogues.
