(Marsden, William). (NUMISMATA ORIENTALIA ILLUSTARATA). No place or date. Two volumes. 8vo, matching cloth-backed mottled boards. 57 original typewritten leaves in German; 57 fine photographic reproductions of the original plates. Near fine. Photographic reproductions of the original plates executed by John Swaine, accompanied by a volume with descriptions, in German, of all of the coins depicted. The plates may be those issued by Wolfgang Schulten in Denklingen, 1946, but the text appears to be an independent effort and may be unique. On the verso of several sheets, “Dr. F. St.” is printed vertically. Ex Peus 11. August 1954 sale; ex Frankfurter Münzhandlung sale of the Bibliothek der Firma Schulman.
