Complete Set of Original Tolstoï Plates
Tolstoï, Comte Jean. ВИЗАНТIЙСКIЯ МОНЕТЫ / MONNAIES BYZANTINES. St. Petersburg, 1912–1914. A complete set of the original 72 fine plates of coins, bound with the eighth and ninth (final) parts of the text, being pages 833–1060. Bound in two volumes. 4to, later brown and black cloth-backed mottled boards, gilt. Near fine. A complete set of the 72 exceptional plates issued for this classic work on the Byzantine coins from Arcadius to Basil I. The text present here covers part of Justinianus through Michael III. Very rare and still indispensable. Clain-Stefanelli 5416*. Grierson 109: "Important parce qu'il utilise la collection de l'Ermitage et la splendide collection privée de l'auteur, aujourd'hui, elle aussi, à l'Ermitage. Le texte (en russe) présente peu d'intérêt. Couvre la période qui va d'Arcadius à Basile I."
