Copy No. 36 of only 100 copies bound in this manner. John W. Adams page 68: “Frossard opened his own business in 1877 and initiated his own periodical, Numisma. This latter, undoubtedly the most lively publication of its kind, provides us with an intimate glimpse into the hobby as it and its personalities then existed.” A good reprint of this rare publication, originally issued from 1877 to 1891 by one of America’s most colorful and outspoken early coin dealers.
