    Roman Silver Coins by H. A. Seaby.

    Volume 1 has line drawings of most Republican types, classified by moneyer's family (not chronologicaly).
    Volume 2 has line drawings of relatively few types.
    Volumes 3 (1969) and 4 (1971) have photographs of some types.

    All are in excellent condition. Volume 1 has a (nearly) complete list of types of Republican denarii with most illustrated with line drawings. The others have (very nearly) complete listings of the types but far from complete illustrations.

    Not the most recent edition, but far cheaper! [$25+$4.50 shipping in the US only]
