Cogan, Edward. CATALOGUE OF A PRIVATE COLLECTION OF ROMAN, GREEK, ENGLISH, SCOTCH, AMERICAN, CANADIAN AND MISCELLANEOUS GOLD, SILVER, AND COPPER COINS AND MEDALS, ALSO, SEVERAL RARE NUMISMATIC BOOKS. New York, April 3-5, 1871. Tall 8vo, original printed wraps. 73, (1) pages; 1758 lots; 1 fine photographic plate. Hand-priced in black ink. Wraps a bit worn; very good or better. Only the third plated U.S. numismatic auction catalogue. The sale itself is of some interest. Attinelli claims that Cogan didn’t actually catalogue it, ascribing this work to Alfred Sandham of Montreal, whom he also credits with being the owner. According to Fred Bowman and Warren Baker, however, the owner was actually James Ferrier, former mayor of Montreal. The photographic plate shows a Breton 673 Montreal Bank Token ½ Penny token, as well as ancient and British pieces. Adams 27, rated B overall (A for British, B for ancients). Attinelli 58.
