The regular hardbound edition of the Ford sale, part I, available only to the subscribers to Kolbe's regular hardcover editions (ten additional copies of the first sale were distributed among those who proofed the initial draft of Part I). The first Ford sale is Kolbe's masterwork, and is unquestionably the most important single-volume numismatic literature auction catalogue published in this country.
