The MoneyMuseum Book Collection - Numismatic Books
The Renaissance had a passion for collecting antiquities, among them also ancient coins. Before long, the first numismatic compilations were printed, the most beautiful of them during the Age of Enlightenment, the heyday of scholarship. Numismatically as interesting yet often in a less attractive outfit are the documents that deal with coins not as collectibles, but as money. Among them are decrees on coinage, or tables for traders or moneychangers.
