Stack’s Bowers Galleries Presents The D. Brent Pogue Numismatic Library

We are pleased to present the numismatic library of D. Brent
Pogue in our August 2020 Public Auction Sale. While Brent Pogue did not focus
on the library in the same manner as he did his magnificent coins and paper
money, he was serious about acquiring important references and might well have
assembled one of the great American libraries had he been able to continue the
pursuit.


Numbering more than 100 lots, the books range from a
handsome 17th-century work on medallic issues of 1500-1600 to volumes presented
to him by Q. David Bowers over the years, many with personal inscriptions. In
between these bookends will be found many important references, from important
plated Chapman sales, to extremely rare items, such as one of five deluxe
presentation copies of A.W. Browning on early quarters. Of particular note is a
lot containing original Andrews, Maris and Chapman studies on the early large
cents. Each is a great rarity in its own right, but will be presented as one
lot, in a custom box, as assembled by Brent Pogue. Finally, perhaps too large
to feature in a print advertisement but immensely historic nonetheless, is a
beautifully matched leather bound set of The Numismatist, containing every
issue from the rare original first six volumes (which once belonged to the
first president of the ANA) through Volume 65 (1952).



The D. Brent Pogue Numismatic Library will lead off Session
3, beginning at 9:00 AM PT on Friday, August 7. For more information on the
Pogue Library email John Pack at [email protected]
