Mattingly, Harold. HOLOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, TO MAX VON BAHRFELDT. Written in black ink on recto of British Museum notepaper [11 by 18 cm]. Dated 7.3.31. Folded; near fine. “Dear Dr von Bahrfeldt: I am very sorry that you have not yet had our third volume. I am sending instructions that it shall be sent to you at once. Research on the early Republic continues & seems likely to give further surprising results; but we do not wish to publish for a little yet, till one or two points become clearer.” The third volume of the Roman Imperial Coinage series was published in 1930, and this is the volume to which Mattingly is referring. Acquired from Herb Kreindler, January 2008. Ex RBW Library.
