Imperatorskaia Arkheologicheskaia Kommicciia. ИЗВѢСТIЯ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ АРХЕОЛОГИЧЕСКОЙ КОММИССIИ. Выпускъ 1-14, 16-25, 27, 29-30, 33-54, 56-61, and 63-66. Last with slight name change. (St. Petersburg, 1901-18). Fifty-nine issues. 4to, original printed wraps. Thousands of pages, with occasional text illustrations and fine plates, some in color, including plates of coins. Varying condition, with some split spines, but most near fine or better and unopened. An exceptional run of this highly important Russian archaeological journal, the proceedings of the Imperial Archaeological Commission, which frequently featured numismatic content within its pages. By far the most comprehensive run of this periodical we have offered. Numismatic content includes Pridik on the Anadol hoard of gold staters (1902), Farmakovsky on excavations of ancient Olbia (1903), Bulychov on the coinage of Riazan (1904), Retowski's significant work on Genoese-Tatar coinage (1906), Oreshnikov's description of the Okulovo hoard (1908), Rostovtsev on monarchal iconography in Scythia and the Bosporus (1913), Golubtsov's wonderfully illustrated work on the coins of Olbia (1914), Vasmer on the Pereyaslav hoard of Cufic coin (1914), a later note by Retowski on Genoese-Tatar coinage (1914), and others. Very scarce, and virtually never offered in substantial groups.
