Cogliati, 1894. Folio, original printed card covers. 107, (1) pages; illustrations in the text. Folded and a bit chipped. Very good. Edizione di 300 Esemplari numerati: Esemplare N. 188. The classic work on the coins of the city of their birth by the brothers Gnecchi, Francesco (1847-1919), and Ercole (1850-1932), both highly accomplished numismatists. The siblings collaborated on both this work and their famous Italian numismatic bibliography but Francesco's important numismatic works far outnumber those of his younger brother; he perhaps remains most famous for his celebrated I Medaglioni Romani.
