Lockett collection - 2 volumes pdfs
« on: June 09, 2021, 10:04:06 am »
I was just browsing through a list of old Glendining auction catalogs on archive org and came across two auction catalogs of the Lockett collection, which may be of interest. (archive.org has a couple of other volumes - old English coins etc.) as well):

Catalogue of Part II of the celebrated collection of coins, formed by the late Richard Cyril Lockett, Esq. : Greek, Part I : Spain, Gaul, Italy, Sicily, and Siculo-Punic issues:

With most Internet Archive digital publications, there is a number of options available for a given item. The easiest to access for use is the PDF, but if you have the software to process the SINGLE PAGE PROCESSED file, you can end up with a PDF that is of considerably higher resolution. Below is the URL for the Lockett Greek Part 1 webpage at Internet Archive. Moving your mouse over the PDF file will show that it is 10mb and moving your mouse over the SINGLE PAGE PROCESSED file shows that this is 50mb. I use a program called Scansoft to build the SINGLE PAGE PROCESSED single pages into a PDF that I can use. I don't know what the Scansoft software costs, as I've had mine for 20 years now. There might be something better available these days. You will also see a SINGLE PAGE ORIGINAL on this Internet Archive webpage, but I have found that though this is an even bigger file, it does not translate into an improved resolution over the SINGLE PAGE PROCESSED file. If you work with this you will see what I mean.

Thank you Helvetica! There seems to be quite a few new uploads of Glendining sales, I enjoy going through them in the forlorn hope that I’ll find a lost provenance for one of my coins.

Thanks to both of you. This is a case of one thing leading to another. There is a treasure trove of pre-1960 Glendining catalogs that have been uploaded to the Internet Archive site. Hopefully the 1960 and later Glendining catalogs will come eventually.
