Künker Nuismatic Book Auctions by Künker GmbH ……
Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,
It is part and parcel of the statutes of both the International Association of Professional Numismatists and of the Verband der Deutschen Münzhändler (Association of German Coin Dealers) that all members need to have an extensive specialist library. And there is a reason for it. Books are the most important tool of every true numismatist. They are the indispensable basis for the reliable identification of coins.
However, books are much more than that.
They are our direct connection to the numismatic past. This never becomes more apparent than when you come across a bookplate, which recalls a known or perhaps unknown coin lover, when buying a pre-owned book. Holding a book in your hands that one of the great numismatists has already worked with – isn’t that a great feeling?
Alain Poinsignon’s library does not only consist of important reference works that are existential for identifying coins. It also contains books that show by means of their ex-libris in which library they once stood.
Have fun browsing through the catalogues!
Many regards from Osnabrück,
Your Künker Team
