    • Ancient Greek and Roman Coins, featuring BMC online and other books
electronically available reference works
« on: September 17, 2008, 02:42:29 pm »
Hi!
I can't remember where I found Ruzicka's 'Die Münzen von Serdica, but I'm sure I found the link here
on FORVM. Furthermore I would like to use this place to collect links to other reference works
available electronically. At the moment I only have a few from archive.org, but I hope to expand it.
Unfortunately I have no access to Google books to see which books are there as full text.

I've been trying to keep Barclay Head's 1911 bibliography annotated with links to books online:

I started a list of all numismatic books on Google but there are too many!

This is what I posted to an inquiry about Ruzicka's Serdica in an Identifications thread:

The Ruzicka Münzen von Serdika was found for me, by Gordian Guy.  It WAS, I think, on archive.org, but perhaps not from Toronto but rather from a US library?  (No, it's at Toronto).    And the .pdf title was the whole volume of the periodical in which it appeared:
numismatischezei48stoft.pdf. 
It is, in fact, Numismatische Zeitschrift, Neue Folge VIII, 1915 (der ganzen Reihe Band XLVIII), pp. 1-82, Taf. I-IX.  Go ahead and download the whole volume, which contains other good things, too.
You will agree: it is not a self-evident .pdf name!
Charley even found the Nachtrag, which, skilled though he is, he had to scan and send as a .jpg.  I'd be glad to send it to you as an e-mail attachment (as he sent it to me); it's NZ for 1919, p. 158, if you happen to have the full run at hand in hard copy.
It's quite a few MB in .pdf, but if you're broadband, I can attach the .pdf on an e-mail to you, too.

Is there a link for this .pdf file?

Joe,

You need to go to archive.org and download the 1915 volume of Numismatische Zeitschrift, numismatischezei48stoft.pdf. It is then the first umpteenth pages of the journal and the plates follow.

Searchable Limited-Preview versions of Elibron reprints of MacDonald, Catalogue of Greek Coins in the Hunterian Collection, vols. I and II, are at amazon.com, searching "Hunterian Collection"; the softcover reprints of vols. I and II are available from Amazon at $33 each, and vol. III is supposedly available for another $33 from the publisher, elibron.com. Pseudo-searching two of three of the older Hunterian volumes is no substitute for full access; for the weaker of wallet than will, two of three are still better than none, however! There is also a Limited-Preview version of Crawford's Roman Republican Coinage:

The images were issued in three unbound portfolios; perhaps someone will scan them and post them, but no one has so far.

This weekend I looked through all of the volumes of the British Museum Catalogue of Greek Coins that are available in full view format (the downloadable books).  After looking at the title page of each available book, I was able to find 21 of the 29 volumes plus a volume on the coins of India (part of a separate series?).  The volumes I wasn't able to find in full view format are as follows:

21: Lycaonia, Isauria and Cilicia
22: Lydia
24: Cyprus
26: Phoenicia
27: Palestine
28: Arabia
29: Cyrenaica

Has anyone seen any of these eight volumes available for download?

I would be curious to see your links for Alexandria etc, Caria etc, Galatia etc, and Mysia.

I keep a list of the BMC Greek books I've found at http://www.snible.org/coins/bmc/ and I'd like to add all the titles I can find.  A good link to BMC Cyprus is there, but it isn't from the usual places!

I believe the Cyrenaica is still under copyright worldwide.  I believe Phoenicia, Palestine, and Arabia are still under copyright in the USA but not in Canada.

Google only includes works it thinks are out-of-copyright.  Phoenicia, Palestine, and Arabia were never printed in the USA, so their copyright term is probably determined by UK law which is life + 70.  George Hill died in 1948.

Thanks for posting these promising links! I keep getting a "File Damaged" message when I set out to download the Mysia volume; anyone having better success with this?

Mysia is working for me.  If you are still having problems send me your email address and I will email you a copy.  Actually maybe my email provider won't accept a 6MB attachment so I can put it temporarily on my web site.

Many thanks, Ed. I am travelling at present, so the problem may be with my internet provider; if the problem persists once I'm  home, I'll take up your kind offer.
