Kosoff, A., and Abner Kreisberg [Numismatic Gallery]. WORLD’S GREATEST COLLECTION OF UNITED STATES SILVER & GOLD COINS. New York, 1945–46. All parts, complete, bound in one volume. 8vo, contemporary blue cloth lettered in gilt; original printed blue card covers and prices realized lists bound in throughout. Near fine. Possibly a special presentation edition. Ex libris Adolph Friedman. Inscribed: “6/69, Mike, In memory of Steve I present this book for your library.” Ex Kliman library. This appears to be a specially bound edition. The type on the upper cover, though spaced more closely, appears to be identical to the copies issued by Numismatic Gallery and the catalogues themselves are as new. “Friedman” is written in pencil on the blank leaf preceding the title of the first catalogue and it seems likely that this volume was specially bound by Kosoff for Adolph Friedman. Ex Kolbe Sale 65, lot 338.
