Found a few Numismatic Books

I went to estate sales yesterday and one sale had an eclectic group of books, including quite a few numismatic related items. Are any of these rare or particularly desirable?

European Crowns 1484-1600, Davenport
2000 Years of British Coins and Medals, Kent
The Evolution of Coinage, MacDonald
An Introduction to Celtic Coins, Allen
Coin Types: Their Origin and Development, MacDonald
The Coin Atlas, Cribb, Cook, Carradice
The Dated European Coinage Prior to 1501, Frey
Coins of England and the United Kingdom, Seaby
The Beauty and Lore of Coins, Currencies, and Medals, Clain-Stefanelli

These look like great references and I'm eager to begin reading a couple of them.

PM me for coin photography equipment, or visit my website:

    With those books there you should have asked if they had any coins!

    The Davenport issue has some value. Though all are nice additions to your library. Congrats!

    Wow.... Nice finds... I would have taken them all as well, even though several are not areas of interest. Worth keeping, or, if I knew someone with interests in those areas, would make nice impromptu gifts. Cheers, RickO

    Estate sales with anything of numismatic interest are a rarity in themselves. Nice find.

    All glory is fleeting.
