Vaillant, Joan. NUMISMATA IMPERATORUM, AUGUSTARUM ET CAESARUM, A POPULIS, ROMANAE DITIONIS, GRAECÈ LOQUENTIBUS, EX OMNI MODULO PERCUSSA: QUIBUS URBIUM NOMINA, DIGNITATES, PRAEROGATIVAE, SOCIETATES, EPOCHAE, NUMINA ILLUSTRES MAGISTRATUS, FESTA, LUDI, CERTAMINA, & ALIA PLURIMA AD EAS SPECTANTIA CONSIGNANTUR. EDITIO ALTERA, AB IPSO AUCTORE RECOGNITA, EMENDATA, SEPTINGENTIS NUMMIS AUCTA; ADDITIS AD QUEMLIBET IMPERATOREM ICONIBUS. CUI ACCESSIT DE NOTIS GRAECORUM NUMISMATUM LITERALIBUS, ET ALTERA DE NUMERALIBUS EXPLANATIO. Amstelaedami: Apud. G. Gallet, 1700. 4to [32 by 21.5 cm], contemporary full brown mottled calf; spine with six raised bands, richly decorated in gilt; maroon morocco spine label, gilt; all page edges red. (12), 344, 339-364, (2), 4, (2) pages [as issued, complete]; cancellans seen by Dekesel in some copies on d1ro not here noted; 11 plates of engravings [Appendix iconum]; plus engravings throughout. Title printed in red and black; engraved headpiece; woodcut headpieces and tailpieces. Spine worn, especially at head and tail, both of which are chipped; corners worn; contents essentially fine. A significant work. Numismata imperatorum was an outstanding achievement, and was very popular in its day, going through many editions. Significantly, Vaillant cited a source for each coin he included in his enumeration, thus avoiding the trap so commonly encountered at the time of listing apocryphal coins.
