[BMC (Greek)] Poole, R. S. et al., [Eds]. A Catalogue of the Greek Coins in the British Museum. (London, 1873-1927. Reprinted Bologna, 1963-88). Complete in 29 volumes, bound as 30. All 8vo. 10,688 pages, 952 plates of coins, further illustrations in the text, maps, tables. Original blue cloth boards, gilt. Very Fine condition, light damage to spines but internally clean throughout. The much-used, Forni reprint edition of this standard work, the ultimate reference for Greek coins. Still essential for the series and covering the entire Greek world, original sets are long out of print and notoriously difficult to acquire.

Clain-Stefanelli 1888*. Daehn 1776. Kroh p. 10 (four stars), “Certainly the most utilized reference work for Greek coins”. Website shipping rates do not apply.
