David Michael Metcalf. Published by Spink & Son Ltd., London. 1961. PB 79 pages. Illustrated with many hundreds of good line drawings. 180 x 246mm. Identifies the medieval coinage of South Germany - including Swabia, Bavaria and parts of Switzerland. No dw (as published). A very good clean copy.
An important, well-researched book, the size of which belies its importance. It describes the coinage of the area and how it circulated. It looks at the evidence of coinage hoards. Areas, cities and rulers are described and identified and often given short biographies. Densely packed with information. This book should be in everyone's numsmatic library as an example of a good book.
