    What is your self published EID MAR book about? Is it a catalogue, history, or both?

    Not a publication, just a printing and binding by me of all existing articles with rough translations of a few. For personal research

    The end of my library exposition in three long threads, firstly History (Antiquarian and modern), then Antiquarian numismatics, then my modern working library and numismatic sales catalogues.

    Last group of pictures above demonstrates the usual filing protocol by language and nationality not alphabetically, because coins tend to circulate many decades between auctions within the same language group.
