Fellows, Sir Charles. Coins of Ancient Lycia Before the Reign of Alexander, with an Essay on the Relative Dates of the Lycian Monuments in the British Museum. (London, 1855.)

Green cloth covers with gilt chimaera and spine title. Fine condition, water stains on cover, slight interior stains.



Ex libris Sir Charles Fellows.

A well conceived, careful analysis of the coins and funerary monuments of ancient Lycia; the conclusions, alas, being almost completely wrong.
