Lanz catalogs for sale in two lots. Descriptions extracted from my "Catalog contents" page.

Lot 1: 41 catalogs as one lot: #6 and all the ones with ancients #22-86 (odd numbered catalogs did not have ancients), and others up to #121.
That whole batch, with prices-realized, $189+$35 shipping = $224 (the cost of one good coin, but of far more eductional value).

ALL (but one, #135) catalogs come with the prices realized, which makes them far more valuable and useful than just the catalogs would be without the PR. 

Lot 2: 20 Lanz catalogs with ancients, as listed below, from #125-166.  $95+$20 shipping = $115.

Lanz  (Munich)  10 1/4" by 7 3/4". All MV and MQP unless noted otherwise. Consistently about 3/8" thick. Early issues have virtually all coins illustrated on excellent page plates. Recent issues have coins illustrated throughout. Lanz includes Roman provincial chronologically within Roman. Catalogs with ancients have only ancients. The first 10 numbers were under the name "Gitta Kastner." Until number 94, virtually all the even numbered catalogs were all ancients and all the odd numbers had none.  84, 93, 99 are literature.
    When Lanz has a moderate number of Byzantine coins, they are usually common gold pieces and there will also be late Roman solidii of the emperors before Anastasius. Lanz almost always has substantial numbers of late Roman AE in excellent condition, and substantial numbers of antoniani. Although very desirable for type, many would sell for less than $150 on eBay. These may be, and often are, right next to high quality aureii and rare late Roman silver and even late Roman gold medallions.
    The photographs in the early issues are good, but not up to the very high modern standards that have become typical. They gradually got better and better sometime around number 34.

6  (11/74)  HQP.  476 ancients on 35 ppl + 9 E.  222 G, 194 R, 60 Byz
    After#12 the named changed to Lanz Munchen.  From this point all even-numbered catalogs are of ancients and all odd-numbered catalogs are of non-ancient coins, until number 84, which was literature.
