A scarce and desirable sale, catalogued by Professor Anthon. Only the second numismatic auction sale in the United States issued with photographic plates. John Allan was a Scottish immigrant to New York City. He lived to be 87 and began collecting coins in the early 1820s. Attinelli thought highly of him: “Mr. Allan was so noted an antiquarian as to require no further mention from me.” The first two leaves (title and introduction) in this plated copy are, as always, printed on regular paper while the text stock is on decidedly thicker stock.
