Thesauri Britannici, pars Altera seu Museum Numarium, Conplexum Numos Graecos, ... [1765]

£340.00

Product description

Published in 1765 by Vindobonae. Text in Latin, with many illustrations of coins by the author, Nicolao Francisco Haym. Half-leather binding with marbled boards. 398 pages, plus an index and a further 168 Lectori.

The full title page in Latin reads:
Thesauri Britannici, pars Altera seu Museum Numarium, Conplexum Numos Graecos, et Latinos Omnis Metalli, et Formae Necdum Editos, Depictos et Descriptos
a Nicolao Francisco Haym Romano, Interprete Josepho Khell, in Conlegio Regio Theresiano Bibliothecae Garellianae et Rei Antiquariae Docende Praefecto

Nicola Francesco Haym (1678–1729) was an Italian opera librettist, composer, theatre manager and performer, literary editor and numismatist. Haym was a collector of paintings and engravings and made drawings himself. In 1719-29 Haym first published a catalogue of ancient Greek and Roman coins and medals, the first work on the ancient coins in the collection of the British Museum, illustrated with his own drawings.

This scarce book appears to be a version of this work on the coins of the British Museum.

The front board with its end-papers, and spine strip have become detached, but are still present. A former owner's (Buddle Atkinson] library plate is attached to the inside cover. Title page is heavily darkened and detached. Staining to first few pages. The pages have foxing spots, but nonetheless are still bright, relatively clean and complete. No annotations.
