Slafter, Rev. Edmund. THE VERMONT COINAGE. Montpelier: Vermont Historical Society, 1870. First edition. Extracted from the Collections of the Vermont Historical Society, Vol. I, pp. (289)-318; 2 lithographic plates. 8vo, later green cloth and marbled boards, gilt. Fine. 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 in the Collections of the Vermont Historical Society (1870), a scarce volume offered only infrequently and from which this copy was extracted and bound. The article was also published as an offprint, bound separately and limited to 50 copies, which is extremely rare today.
