Kolbe, George Frederick. AUCTION SALES XXI & XXVI. NUMISMATIC BOOKS. Crestline, June 4-5, 1985 and June 9-10, 1986. Oblong 4to, original orange Spanish-grained cloth, gilt; original printed card covers bound in. 88, (2); 96, (2) pages; 1609; 2000 lots; prices realized lists bound in. Fine. The combined hardcover edition of these public sales, held at Kolbe’s home and office. One of fewer than 30 copies thus bound. The seemingly unusual sale numbers are explained by the fact that Sales 22, 24 and 25 appeared as part of the Numismatic Bookseller, while Sale 23 was the fourth joint Kolbe/Spink sale. Kolbe has stated that this volume, and the combined joint Kolbe/Spink 2-5 volume above, were the last ones bound wholly for presentation purposes. Beginning in 1987, hardcover catalogues became available on a subscription basis.
