Merkin, Lester. AUCTION SALES. New York, 1964-76. Thirty-one auction sales, complete. 8vo, original printed or pictorial card covers [slightly varying formats]. Several with prices realized lists. Generally a fine set. Merkin's catalogues were more terse than those of New Netherlands, but, like that noted firm, they include an enormous amount of information. Part of this is because many of the sales were catalogued by Walter Breen, with other prominent numismatists also contributing cataloguing to the Merkin series. Complete sets are scarce, and include a couple mail-bid sales that are infrequently seen. Ex Michael Spurlock library.
