Coole 343*: "Only 100 sets of this work were published on the first printing [of which this is a reprint]. The first six volumes are limited to illustrations reproduced from rubbings of the earliest bronze coins on down to the end of the Ch’ing Dynasty. The last six volumes contain the descriptive matter which, as a rule, are brief reprints in re a particular coin from numerous coin books Due credit is given the book and author but no paging is given. This is a ‘must’ for anyone interested in studying Chinese numismatics in Chinese." Ex Kolbe Sale 46, lot 402.
