AN INTRODUCTION TO COMMEMORATIVE MEDALS IN ENGLAND 1685-1746

BY HARDING, B.

 

An Introduction to Commemorative Medals in England, 1685- 1746. Their Religious, Political and Artistic Significance.  Softback, 83pages, Colour illustrations throughout.

A beautifully illustrated introduction to commemorative medals issued in England from 1685-1746. The period covered primarily encompasses some 35 years from the accession of James II to the early 1720’s when a return to more peaceful conditions reduced the number of opportunities for medallic commemoration. Over those 35 years commemorative medals provide an unrivalled commentary on contemporary events.

By setting each medal in its historical context and in chronological order, its particular relevance to the political, religious or military conflict of the day is highlighted, and its use as propaganda against the power of France, and the Jacobite uprisings, is emphasised.

The allegorical nature of many of the reverse designs is explained with reference to the event commemorated and the lavish colour illustrations show the superb quality if die engraving around the turn of the 18th century, an activity which deserves to be considered an art form in its own right.
