Numismatics - 8th Feb 2018

Numismatics Coins: An Illustrated Survey 650BC to the Present Day
Martin Jessop Price (Ed)

This book was published by Methuen in association with British Museum Publications Ltd and comes in a black slipcase. There are 20 contributing experts who wrote the essays which cover a survey of coins from the time of the Ancient Greeks. The book is lavishly illustrated from the British Museum collections.

It covers the history from before coinage through the Hellenistic kingdoms and the Roman Empire on to Byzantium, Christendom and on to modern coinage and paper money (and all the other bits I have left out).

This is definitely a must-read for any numismatist but it also serves as a thorough introduction to the history for anyone interested (or about to develop an interest) in coins or collecting.
