Kraay, Colin M., and Max Hirmer. GREEK COINS. New York: Harry N. Abrams, (1966). 4to, original tan linen, gilt; jacket. 396 pages; 4 maps; 20 most attractive plates of tipped-in enlarged illustrations of coins in full color; 1329 additional fine coin illustrations. Page edges a bit spotted, as often seen; else fine. An important and popular book. Clain-Stefanelli 1849*. Grierson 53. Kroh 7 (5 stars): “the ultimate ‘coffee-table’ book; certainly the finest work on Greek coins ever printed. It is massive in size, and contains many fantastic enlargements of the best Greek coins you are ever likely to see. The text (by Colin Kraay) is very well written, and the photography (by Max Hirmer) is truly incredible, even by today’s standards. Long out of print, this is arguably the world’s most sought after numismatic book.”
