Many classical numismatic books are printed in small runs of 1000 or less and become difficult to find after the initial printing has sold. All books are new and the latest reprint unless otherwise noted. All used books are worn working copies unless otherwise noted. Orders for multiple books may be shipped priority mail or media mail if the type of mail selected is not available due to limits set by the post office. For overseas orders, we do not recommend ordering coins and books on the same order.
