Chuchin, F.G. КАТАЛОГ БОН И ДЕНЗНАКОВ РОССИИ, Р.С.Ф.С.Р., СССР, ОКРАИН И ОБРАЗОВАНИЙ, 1769-1927. Handwritten copy of the 1927 original, produced by David Atsmony probably in the 1970s. 20.5 by 16 cm, mid-century notebook with plain black covers; 192 pages of ruled paper. Entire notebook filled with handwritten text in blue ink, including index. A few pages smudged, but very readable for the most part. Card covers a bit worn; very good. Most interesting, being a handwritten copy of this rare work on Russian paper money. The Rezak library had only a photocopy of Chuchin; it was not present in the Archer library. A labor of love, produced by one David Atsmony of Tel Aviv.
