Fock, Gustav. BOOKS ON NUMISMATICS / LIVRES NUMISMATIQUES / NUMISMATISCHE BÜCHER ... CONTAINS THE COMPLETE CATALOGUE OF THE LIBRARY OF MESSRS. BRÜDER EGGER IN VIENNA (FOUNDED 1856). Leipzig: Nr. 635, 1930. 12mo, original printed wraps. (4), 160 pages; 2568 priced listings. Spine neatly reinforced with archival mending tissue. Very good. In a 1980 letter to George Kolbe, noted numismatist and bibliophile Alfred Szego termed this catalogue “the best of its type ever issued as far as I know. The date is 1930, I think. As this library was formed after 1856 many of the old books ancient through contemporary were listed... This catalog is nearly unknown... Although it lists only a fraction of Lipsius and Leitzmann’s contents much more information is given.” Kolbe 696: “An extremely important, detailed compilation.”
