(British Museum Press, London 2005)
This important series of books has become one of the most famous in the history of numimastics, the original having been written and printed over a period of forty
years from 1923 to 1962. Reprints and revisions have appreared periodically, but the complete set of six volumes has largely been unobtainable as a unit for many years and prices on the second hand
market have reached sums beyond that of the average collector. With this in mind and with new technmology, the current reprint was undertaken by SPINK in association with the British Museum
The plates in this edition are perhaps the major diffrence between this and previous reprints. The plates from the original editions have been used and through the expertise of the printersm Cabridge University Press, the method of replicating the original collotype plates, previously thought to be impossible to achieve, has been perfected.
The text consists of a high-quality digitally scanned reprint taken from the latest editions and reprints, so this edition combines the quality of the original plates
ans the most up-to-date information.
