Saulcy, F. de. SYSTÈME MONÉTAIRE DE LA RÉPUBLIQUE ROMAINE À L’ÉPOQUE DE JULES CÉSAR. (Paris, 1873). 4to, contemporary green half leather with marbled boards; marbled endpapers. 32 pages; 10 plates engraved by Dardel depicting Roman Republican coins. Gilt spine lettering faded; near fine. Extrait des mémoires de la societé française de numismatique et d’archéologie. Quite rare. Babelon 145: “F. de Saulcy (1807-1880) dabbled in every branch of numismatics with characteristic enthusiasm... Saulcy was a man at the vanguard of numismatics, who enthusiastically tackled a subject which was still in its scientific infancy, and did not blush at any mistakes he might make along the way... there is little doubt that his pioneering approach laid the foundations for subsequent work.” Ex RBW Library.
