Personally, I view my collections of ancients coins and ancient coin literature as inseparable. I'm not even sure any more if the coins are part of my library or the books are part of my coin collection. Here are some of my favorites. Roman Egypt, Alexandria. "Glamour shot" with some of my favorite books on the coins of Roman Egypt, Alexandria (Hadrian Drachm & Tetradrachm at bottom for scale): Autographed. Most of mine are for reference (especially books that aren't available digitally), but others are more in the category of "collectables." I've added a few more since taking the photos (most notably a Select Numismatic Bibliography inscribed by E.E. Clain-Stefanelli ), but here are some volumes with author signatures/inscriptions and/or written correspondence: Sale Catalogs. I have one set of shelves dedicated to my ancient coin auction catalogs & fixed-price lists (incl. bibliographies). Unfortunately I couldn't quite get enough focus to read all the spines, but many wouldn't have spine labels anyway (a mostly-complete list on my catalog webpages): Numismatic Bookplates. I also keep track of my "numismatic bookplates" and other physical indicators of past ownership or book use. (I'm one of the few book collectors who loves ex-library volumes!) Here are most of my favorites: Please share some ancient coin literature of any kind! Doesn't have to be as prepared as all that (my photos were taken for other purposes over the past year or two). Discuss a favorite book, show your most heavily used volume -- I'm sure we'll be interested to see!
