Kaufman, I.I. РУССКIЙ ВѣСЪ ЕГО РАЗВИТIЕ И ПРОИСХОЖДЕНIЕ ВЪ СВЯЗИ СЪ ИСТОРIЕЮ РУССКИХЪ ДЕНЕЖНЫХЪ СИСТЕМЪ СЪ ДРЕВНѣЙ-ШИХЪ ВРЕМЕНЪ. St. Petersburg, 1906. Small 4to, original printed wraps. (2), (93)-183, (1) pages. Wraps taped at edges. Very good. A noted publication on Russian metrology, the work of a recognized economist/numismatist of the day, containing much useful background information. Extracted from Vol. I, No. 1 of the Записки нумизматическаго отдѣленiя Императорскаго Русскаго Археологическаго Общества (1906) and with an added title page, this variant is not mentioned by Volkov and no one seems to mention the difference between this version and the one with its own pagination (cf. our January 2014 sale of the Archer library, lot 69).
