    Does anyone of you have this 9-Volume-Set by Alberto Banti (issued in 1983-1986)?

    When someone mentions a "nine volume set" I can't help myself, I have to have it, so please don't post things like this.:)

    It´s a series on large Roman bronze coins, in Italian and English, with blue bindings in faux leather.
    All Medallions and Sestertius types are discussed, illustrated, and the number of known examples for each type given (!!!)
    Sadly out of print and not in my local library...

    Many years ago I had a set but as I never used it I sold it. They are now hard to find and expensive when you do.

    Knowing I would never use a book has never stopped me!

    In the past me either. But moving from a larger house to a small one, having kids, well, space became a premium. Books had to go. Its strange, they are expensive to buy, but when you sell they go for pennies. I am now of the frame of mind to not get rid of any of them and to buy more. After all, in a few years when the first kid goes to college I hope to appropriate that room for books!

    You should have sold them to me! A complete set of Banti now goes for 500-1.000 USD :-(

    If I remember correctly they cost about $50 per volume at the time, I sold them for about $10 each. Just the nature of things.....

    Having a book room is a nice luxury.
