Delfico, Melchiorre. DELLA ANTICA NUMISMATICA DELLA CITTÀ DI ATRI NEL PICENO CON ALCUNI OPUSCOLI SU LE ORIGINI ITALICHE. Napoli: Dalla Tipografia di Angelo Trani, 1826. Folio [37 by 24 cm], original thick printed paper covers. (8), 82 + (2), 33, (3) pages; 2 + 1 fine engraved plates of coins and weights. Second pagination incorporates a few short works, generally in the form of letters. An unsophisticated copy, untrimmed and near fine, with marginal discoloration to plates and few other signs of wear. Another rarity, also the first copy we have offered in at least 25 years. An expansion of the previous work, with different appended materials. The two engraved plates of coins are the same as in the 1824 edition (but untrimmed), though the plate of weights is new to this edition. Leitzmann 32. Ex RBW Library.
