Retowskii, O.F. ГЕНУЭЗ-СКО-ТАТАРСКIА МОНЕТЫ. In the Imperatorskaia Arkheologicheskaia Kommissia’s Из-вѣстiя Императорской Архео-логической Коммиссiи, Выпускъ 18-й (St. Petersburg, 1906). 4to, original printed wraps. (4), 164 pages; text illustrations; 7 lithographic plates and 2 fine plates [Retowskii’s article comprises pages 1-72 and is accompanied by 6 lithographic plates]. Printed on thick stock. Minor signs of wear. Unopened and near fine. Very scarce and important. Retowskii’s work has been translated and reprinted, and remains an essential source. A good candidate for binding. Clain-Stefanelli 6813*. Grierson 231. Mayer 1424: “Golden Horde, Giray Khans.” Both Clain-Stefanelli and Grierson conflate this work with Retowskii’s 1898-1901 work on the Genoese-Tatar coins struck for Kaffa (Mayer 1423).
