[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.
