Original copies of the final seven volumes of this rare and highly important publication. The Literatur-Blatt published notices and reviews of new numismatic publications and is a vital source of information, particularly for publications on ancient and Germanic coins. It ran for 369 numbers from 1880 to 1939 (Bahrfeldt died in 1936, and Richard Gaettens took over as editor). The American Numismatic Society’s publication Numismatic Literature was intended to act as a continuation of it. Clain-Stefanelli 834. Grierson 14. Kolbe 814. Ex George F. Kolbe Library.
