Elder, Thomas L. CATALOGUE OF THE FORTY-THIRD PUBLIC SALE. MAGNIFICENT RARE COIN COLLECTION OF THE LATE PETER MOUGEY, ESQR. OF CINCINNATI, OHIO. New York: Daniel R. Kennedy, Auctioneer, Sept. 1-3, 1910. Small 8vo, contemporary dark green cloth, gilt; floral endpapers. 92, (4) pages; 1626 lots; 42 very fine photographic plates. Priced throughout in black in. Hinges weak. Near fine. Inscribed in pencil at head of title: "E.H. Adams, Green Cloth, (4." This appears to be instructions to the binder and, combined with the patterned endpapers found in many copies of Adams's 1913 work on patterns, suggests that the volume at hand was his personal copy. A most important plated sale catalogue; rarely offered. It is especially noteworthy for Mougey's outstanding collection of nearly 300 superb large cents, of which over 200 are depicted on the first twenty plates. The remainder of the plates depict rare colonial and American coins from half cents to double eagles. [Online description truncated; see PDF or printed catalogue for full description.]
