Woodward, W. Elliot. CATALOGUE OF AMERICAN COINS, MEDALS, &C., BEING SELECTED SPECIMENS FROM THE CABINETS OF MESSRS. BACHE, BERTSCH, LIGHTBODY, LILLIENDAHL, AND VINTON, TOGETHER WITH THE ROMAN COLLECTION FORMERLY BELONGING TO SIR EDMUND TEMPLE, OF LONDON, BUT MORE RECENTLY TO MR. WATSON, OF NEW YORK, THE WHOLE NOW THE PROPERTY OF W. ELLIOT WOODWARD, OF ROXBURY, MASS. New York, Mar. 20-25, 1865. 8vo, original printed wraps. 220 pages; 3834 lots. Pages unopened; covers and spine worn; rear wrap detached; interiors near fine. Woodward's sixth Semi-Annual Sale and, like its predecessors, an important one. Massive in its scope, it manages to include excellent quality material nonetheless. The ancients include over 50 pages of Roman coins, and the selection of European material is far above average. The U.S. coins are the highlight, however, and include outstanding large cents and half eagles, an 1861 Paquet $20, an NE shilling and many other rarities. A scarcer sale: Woodward notes in his introduction (on the inside wrap, happily present in this copy) that "Every expense attending the issue of a Catalogue having largely increased within the past year, I have had printed of the present one very little more than one-third of my usual number." Adams 11 (A overall, A in large cents, colonials, medals, patterns, U.S. gold, Washington and ancients). Attinelli 40.
