This work is based on the British Museum collection, and those of the collections in museums of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Berlin, Birmingham, Belfast and York, as well as the major private collections in the UK. The amount of research done to produce this work is heroic. The history of each issuer is given in minute detail. Forgeries are considered and exposed. This book is in the league of Peck, and Dalton & Hamer. Detailed, accurate descriptions. Excellent illustrations. A worthy winner of the IAPN book prize.
