Every major public collection of historical medals was examined in compiling this volume. Nearly 2000 medals are listed in chronological order, giving full details of subject, style and designer, dimensions, metals in which the medal was made, rarity, bibliographical references and locations in major collections. Detailed indexes of people, events, inscriptions and designers are also included. 516 pp, lavishly illustrated. The dust jacket is sunned on the spine, rubbed at the extremities, has light surface wear but has not been price-clipped. The cut edges, pages and actual text are very clean and unmarked. As the book (unpacked) weighs over 2.5 Kgs we would need to send it by courier, the courier rate is £9.64.
