[Royal Numismatic Society]. The Numismatic Chronicle. (London, 1838-2005). A substantial run of seventy-two volumes for the years: 1838-46, 1851-58, 1862-63, 1865-68, 1872, 1873, 1880-89, 1891-1930, 1933-35, 1937-2005. Fair condition overall. A mismatched set with various bindings, some volumes loose in wrappers, a handful of volumes bound in contemporary leather, the later volumes all in the original or roughly contemporary cloth boards. Generally worn, the unbound issues somewhat scruffy, the leather bindings heavily rubbed with some boards loose and some of the spines of the later cloth volumes heavily marked, the contents in mostly clean condition throughout. A very good, substantial run of this exceptionally important English language journal, the longest continually running numismatic periodical in existence containing numerous papers written by leading scholars and collectors from the nineteenth century to the present day, many unavailable elsewhere and still of major relevance to numismatic study today. Includes an impressive number of the difficult to obtain early volumes and war issues. Very rare and important thus.
