EUROPE  -  COLONIAL  -  LATIN AMERICA

This is an offering of titles on European, Colonial, and Latin American numismatic subjects. These are not my dealing specialties, so I have included only a few not-in-stock titles for informational purposes. Listings with blue background are standard references or important generalized works for their category. Red author name links to a scan of the cover, and red title links to a sample pfage, or contents page. [Estimates] in parentheses are informational, not a for-sale offer. Small Order Charge under $10. I buy books. Libraries and single copies are wanted.

Good sources for European and Colonial numismatic literature are Spink & Son (England), Mevius Numisbooks (Netherlands), and Münzgalerie Münich (Germany) whose catalog you must download (lower left icon).
