Kosoff, Abe. ABE KOSOFF REMEMBERS… 50 YEARS OF NUMISMATIC REFLECTIONS. New York, 1981. Small 4to, original tan full cowhide, gilt; spine with seven raised bands, ruled and decorated in gilt; red spine label, gilt; marbled endpapers; silk marker. (8), 392 pages; portrait; text illustrations. Inscribed to Margo Russell by both Abe Kosoff and publisher Sanford Durst. Fine. Special Autographed Leatherbound Edition, infrequently seen. The numismatic world according to Kosoff, comprising a reprint of a series of entertaining and informative articles which originally appeared in Coin World over a thirteen-year span, rearranged here by Kosoff "to present the reader with an orderly presentation of numismatic history in the twentieth century." Very entertaining if a bit one-sided at times. Abner Kreisberg's longtime secretary Harriet once expressed the Kreisberg perspective in an amusing aside to Jack Collins, quipping that maybe her boss would write a sequel entitled Kreisberg Can't Forget. This copy is inscribed to Margo Russell by both the author and publisher, with Kosoff writing, "When God made you, he did nothing else that day--just leaned back and smiled," and Durst writing simply, "I love you--you're the best." Russell seemed to bring out the best in people.
