Waddington, W. H., Babelon, E. & Reinach, Th. Recueil Général des Monnaies Grecques D’Asie Mineure. Paris 1910-1912. Four parts complete in two volumes. Premiere Fascicule: Pont et Paphlagonie. Paris, 1904. Quarto, pp. 210, (2), 28 fine plates; Deuxieme Fascicule: Bithynie (jusqu’á Juliopolis). Paris, 1908. Quarto, pp. (4), (211)-393, (1), (29)-44 plates; Troisième Fascicule: Nicée et Nicomédie. Paris, 1910. Quarto, pp. (4), (395)-572, (2), (45)-93; Quatrième Fascicule: Prusa, Prusias, Tius. Paris, 1912. (575)-640, (2), (99)-111 plates.

All four parts bound into two volumes in dark blue cloth and matching boards with the original paper wrappers preserved.

Binding weakening with some pages and plates lose. Some staining to the prelims of the first part, other minor areas of discolouration, contents otherwise very good. Marbled endpapers, ex-libris on first pastedown.

A massive undertaking on the part of the authors, this classic reference is still the most complete work in its area with the coins now housed in the Bibliothèque Nationale. Important and rarely offered. Clain-Stefanelli 2600; Daehn 4529; Kroh 65.
