Gnecchi, F. I medaglie romane. Volume primo. Oro ed argento. Volume secondo. Bronzo. Parte prima: Gran modulo. Volume terzo. Bronzo. Parte seconda: Moduli minori. Parte terza: Medalioni del senato. (Milano: Ulrico Hoepli, 1912). Complete in three volumes. Large 4to. fine portrait of the author as frontispiece, titles printed in red and black, lxviii, 83, (1), (4); (16), 158, (1), (5); (16), 234, (6); 162 superbly printed plates. All three volumes bound in quarter morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt. Marbled endpapers throughout. From the libraries of Joel L Malter, and Edward Newell with the former’s ex-libris on the front pastedown of the second volume only, and Newell’s present in each. Fine condition, a well used set, the binding now weak with the hinges of volume two and some pages loose, a number of pages chipped with tears and nicks throughout. Still a handsome set which would benefit from the attention of a skilled binder. A monumental and unsurpassed work, very rarely offered.
