Zubov, P.V. МАТЕРIАЛЫ ПО РУССКОЙ НУМИЗМАТИКѢ. 2002 Moscow reprint of the 1897 original. 4to, original laminated printed boards. (2), vii, (1), 31, (1) pages; 137 detailed descriptions; table; 10 plates of coins. Fine. A modern reprint of what is otherwise a rare book. Pavel Vasilievich Zubov (1863-1921) was one of the most important Russian coin collectors of his time. “In 1897 he published his only numismatic work--a pamphlet of 31 pages with ten plates. It annotated and supplemented the Georgii Mikhailovich volumes then in print and brought forward a comprehensive range of newly identified Petrine copper--one of Zubov’s strong suits. There was the 1711 double-date kopeck, and no less than four different Sevsk chekhs.” -- Journal of the Russian Numismatic Society, Spring 1988 issue. Gromachevskii 137, where he notes that it was printed in small quantities for personal distribution. The plates in this reprint are well executed.
