 Collectors of ancient coins use coin reference books to  understand and classify  their collections. Coin books, and related publications such as auction catalogues and price lists, are collectively described as numismatic literature. Classical Coins offers different resources for those interested in numismatic literature about ancient coins. The first is a page listing and describing recommended ancient coin books. These recommendations will  provide an excellent starting point for developing a numismatic library. The second resource is a page listing  numismatic books and other types of numismatic literature currently offered for sale by Classical Coins.

Numismatic literature - in itself  a significant collecting subject -  originated shortly after the invention of printing, and the elegant engraved illustrations of Greek and Roman coins in early examples are treasured today by book collectors. There is a tremendous body of literature on the subject of ancient coins, far exceeding everything that has been written about modern coins.

As your knowledge of collecting ancient coins increases and as you become an expert in various types and series of ancient coins, books on specialized topics will become increasingly important to you.  Classical Coins offers an extensive selection of fine used numismatic reference books, sale catalogues, monographs  and other numismatic literature to tempt the collecting specialist.
