Société d’Archéologie et de Numismatique de St. Pétersbourgh. MÉMOIRES DE LA SOCIÉTÉ D’ARCHÉOLOGIE ET DE NUMISMATIQUE DE ST. PÉTERSBOURG. Vol. II, Parts IV–VI [the complete volume]. St. Pétersbourg, 1848. Dr. B. de Köhne, editor. As published in two issues. 8vo, original printed wraps. 436, x, (2) pages plus 18 pages, being the Bulletin, bound within; text illustrations; 20 of 21 engraved or lithographic plates [lacking Plate 9: see comments]. Unopened. Near fine. The complete second volume of this early and important publication, in its original state. Lacking only Plate 9: in the volume constituting Parts IV and V (the first two parts of the second volume), a leaf stating that Plate 9 would be published in the next issue appears between Plates 8 and 10. No such plate is present in the copy of Part VI in this lot, however. It is possible that it was removed from this copy, as the cover states that the issue includes seven plates while only six are present. Most interesting. Ex Zander library (Elmen 2001 sale, lot 1061). Clain-Stefanelli 676. From the library of Quentin Archer.
