Bowers and Merena. LIMITED EDITION PHOTOGRAPHIC PLATES. STATE COPPER COINAGE 1785-1788. TAYLOR COLLECTION. (Wolfeboro): Bowers and Merena, 1987. Oblong 4to, original purple leatherette, gilt. Photographic title, limitation leaf, and table of contents leaf; 23 fine cloth-hinged photographic plates of coins with guards. Very good or better. Number 42 of only 182 examples issued, signed by Q. David Bowers, Michael Hodder and Cathy Dumont. An excellent photographic record of this remarkable collection of colonial and early American coins. This copy belonged to George Perkins, the well-known collector of Connecticut coppers, though it is not marked as such, as was obviously used by him as a reference.
