A high-quality facsimile reproduction by V. Arefiev of this rare and classic work, of which only 100 copies were originally printed.

In it he first mentions his grand design to publish a corpus of Russian coins from the time of Peter the Great. The Arefiev reprint is well-executed, on very good paper and with remarkably fine reproductions of the plates. Gromachevskii 92и.
