Kraft, Konrad. DAS SYSTEM DER KAISERZEITLICHEN MÜNZPRÄGUNG IN KLEINASIEN. MATERIALIEN UND ENTWÜRFE. Berlin, 1972. 4to, original linen folder lettered in brown; text in original card covers, plates loose as issued. 220, (2) pages; 24 plates of maps; 117 plates of coins. Fine. Istanbuler Forschungen, Band 29. An impressive work. Clain-Stefanelli 4514*. Kroh 64 (five stars): "This is an incredible study that traces the sharing of obverse dies between various cities in Asia Minor coming to the conclusion that there were central workshops that engraved and struck coins for various cities instead of individual mints in each. ... The plates are so crisp and clear that each detail on even the most heavily worn coins stands out boldly. This is a most spectacular work that can ably serve as a basis for further study."
