The deluxe hardcover edition, bound to resemble Adams’s two volumes on U.S. numismatic auction catalogues. The sale included extremely important correspondence pertaining to U.S. large cents, which brought very strong prices. One of two hardcover editions prepared for this sale, both of which incorporate a token Kolbe had made featuring his logo (as do some softcovers). A very attractive production, featuring different card covers than the regular softcover edition: as the regular card covers proved too dark to make the cover’s illustration adequately stand out, white card covers were used instead when preparing the hardcovers. Number 21 of only 25 copies thus bound. Kolbe 1065.
