Slafter, Rev. Edmund. THE VERMONT COINAGE. Montpelier: Vermont Historical Society, 1870. First edition. In Collections of the Vermont Historical Society, Vol. I (1870). xix, (1), 508 pages [Slafter's article comprises pages 291-318 and features 2 lithographic plates]. Entire volume present. 8vo, disbound, with text block split at his article. Good, but restorable. The Rev. Edmund Slafter's seminal work on the coins of Vermont was the first specialized monograph on such a topic: while others had written short articles and general surveys of colonial coins, Slafter attempted a focused, serious look at one particular series. It was first published here in the Collections of the Vermont Historical Society (1870), a scarce volume offered only infrequently. The article was also published as an offprint, bound separately and limited to 50 copies, which is extremely rare today. While the binding of this copy is in a poor state of preservation, a good binder could improve it readily.
