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, later green cloth, gilt. 73, (1) pages; 1758 lots; 1 fine photographic plate. Fine. 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 1/2 Penny, as well as ancient and British pieces. Adams 27, rated B overall (A for British, B for ancients). Attinelli 58. Ex Armand Champa Library.
