zoom view
Sylvester Crosby: The Early Coins of America and the Laws Governing Their Issue ..., 1878, published by Estes & Lauriat, Boston, 1878, 381 pages, 10 heliotype plates, 2 folding manuscript plates, 110 wood engravings in the text, all edges marbled, recent half Morocco with original spine laid on, maroon cloth sides, modern ownership signature on the first blank leaf. Internally quite clean. Davis 291. In the first indication that Crosby was tiring of being the sole distributor of the masterpiece he had written and published, he sold a small number of copies, perhaps as few as 35, directly to Boston booksellers Estes & Lauriat, who reprinted the title page only replacing Crosby’s name as publisher with that of their firm and changing the date from 1875 to 1878, creating, for marketing purposes, the false impression of a second edition. The paper stock used for the title page is of considerably lighter weight, and the seldom seen copy is often chipped and torn - not the case here.
