[J Allan] PB 3rd edition, 1922 PB 94 pages + 8 b&w plates. Many excellent line drawing illustrations in the text. Covers everything from ancient Greek coins to medals. 140 x 216mm. Scruffy front and rear cover spine repaired with gummed tape (pre-war).
This book describes the contents of the display cases in the old coin room. The cases held coins, medals and currency of descriptions of all periods organised on a chronological and basis. The contents of each of the 11 sections are described in a short essay intended for an intelligent person who wanted to learn about the coins and their development. A most useful book despite the fact that the displays are no longer there. It may be old and cheap, but if you want background reading this is good.
