    (Hawkins, Edward). Anglo-Gallic Coins in the Collection of Sir Charles Frederick, Knight of the Bath. (London, c. 1830). 8vo, contemporary red straight-grained morocco, gilt; spine with five raised bands, ruled, lettered and decorated in gilt; all board edges and turn-ins decorated in gilt; marbled endpapers. (2), 29 leaves, ruled neatly, on which have been mounted engravings of 69 Anglo-Gallic coins, with annotations in the hand of Edward Hawkins. Coins depicted are mostly from the collection of Charles Frederick but also include some based on published illustrations that subsequently proved apocryphal. Frederick (1709-1785) had commissioned a series of engravings of these coins, discussed by Hawkins (1780-1867) in his introduction to the British Museum catalogue of the Anglo-Gallic coinage. Dusty, very good or better. Estimate $300.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
