Seventeenth Century England: Traders and their Tokens.

George Berry.  Published by B A Seaby Ltd., London. 1988  HB (red cloth with gilt-lettered spine). vii + 168 pages. Illustrated throughout in the text with b&w illustrations.  152 x 234 mm.  Almost as new.

The author looks at seventeenth-century tokens in a somewhat different way from usual and treats them from the point of view of the various trades of the issuers: inn and tavern keepers; coffee houses, butchers, bakers and candle-makers; booksellers, town pieces, and many others.  An interesting and readable account of the times, includes gaols, religion and politics.  For a readable, overall view of the tokens of the seventeenth century, this is probably the best account.
