S. Ambrosoli. Ulrico Hoepli (editore) Milano, 1906. HB. xvi + 428 pages + 53 pages of adverts + another 20 or so pages of alphabetical listing of the authors of Hoepli manuals of one kind and another. 102 x 106mm.
This is a very unusual book. The first 16 pages are a select bibliography of italian numismatic works and an index to the book which consists entirely of illustrations of the many types of the coins of Italy - yes, all 428 pages are pictures !
NB This is not a modern 'print on demand' reprint. It is not, however, quite as early as the 1906 date would indicate as the list of adverts is dated 1918.
The (cream-coloured) cover is grubby, otherwise vg !
