Rizzo, Giulio Emanuele. MONETE GRECHE DELLA SICILIA. Reprint. Bologna: Forni, 1968. Two volumes. Folio, matching original gray-blue cloth, gilt. Frontispiece; vii, (1), 318, (4), xi, (1) pages; titles printed in red and black; maps; illustrated throughout and on 66 plates of coins housed in separate plate folder. Both volumes with tears to cloth at spine; general wear to text; plate folder with discoloring, but contents fine. The Forni reprint of this extraordinary work, not much more frequently encountered than the scarce originals. While the bindings of this set are worn (as often seen), the plates are fine. Clain-Stefanelli 2202*: "Chiefly concerned with the esthetic aspect of the coinage." Daehn 2972. Grierson 63. Kroh 19 (four and a half stars): "a very detailed work that is the most complete and easiest to use."
