Annotated notebook pages, original photographs, and photocopied references, as follows: 25 notebook pages onto which have been pasted clippings from various references on the subject, including coin illustrations, and featuring Wallace’s original handwritten annotations on many of the pages; 10 stamp stock book pages holding approximately 125 original photographs of coins, most of them clipped to size, with annotations giving sources for many of the photos (though these are original photos taken of coins and not photos of printed illustrations); 17 pages of original handwritten notes by Wallace, many of them quite detailed, listing coins issued by various rulers, with citations to their appearances in auctions and other commercial venues; near 40 pages of photocopied references on the subject (mostly those of Rabino di Borgomale), some of them with handwritten annotations. Materials arranged for inclusion in a three-ring binder, with leaves punched for such. Very good to near fine. Item #7210
A fascinating and unique group of archival materials, notable not only for the original photographs of Persian and Iranian coins, but for Holland Wallace’s handwritten notes on the subject. Wallace was a researcher in world coins and authored: Central American Coinage Since 1821; A Guide Book of Mexican Coins—1822 to Date; and Coins of the World 1750–1850 among other works.
