Woodward, W. Elliot. THE MONEY OF THE MERCHANTS. CATALOGUE OF J.N.T. LEVICK'S COLLECTION OF COINS AND TOKENS, AND OF AN UNRIVALLED COLLECTION OF PRIVATE FRACTIONAL PAPER CURRENCY. New York, May 26-29, 1884. 8vo, modern red full morocco, gilt; spine with five raised bands, ruled and lettered in gilt. 120 pages; 2535 lots; 4 fine heliotype plates of tokens. Hand-priced in ink. Fine. A rare and wonderful plated sale. Adams A: "Definitive store cards, hard times tokens with many of the former in silver. Bouquet sous. 54 gold patterns. Standish 3¢." Joseph N.T. Levick was a major figure in the early days of American numismatics. In 1866 he proposed the establishment of the American Journal of Numismatics, and his efforts were instrumental in its success. His collection of American storecards, "The Money of the Merchants," was unsurpassed, and is one of the most desirable sale catalogues in the Woodward series. Historically this remarkable catalogue has rarely been offered with plates, particularly without cropping. Ex Armand Champa library (Sale III, lot 2667).
