About this Item

Seven plates presumably extracted from the work by Thomas Snelling: 'A View of the Origin, Nature and Use of Jettons or Counters. Especially those Commonly Known by the name of Black Money or Abbey Pieces.' This work was published in 1769. Jettons (Jetons) were coin like tokens produced in Middle Age Europe, used both for counting purposes and as a substitute for money in games. (Wikipedia). The seven plates are titled 'Coins of Charles II, James II, William and Mary, William II and Anne;' 'Reckoning Pennies or Counters Made at Nuremberg (3 different of these with the same title);' 'Old Jettons or Counters commonly called Black money;' 'Ancient Jettons or Counters (2 different of these with same title)'. Each plate features 30 or so pieces, depicting the obverse and reverse of each piece, with sizes differing between the jetons. Each plate measures approximately 13 ½ by 10 ½ inches wide. Ranging from POOR to GOOD condition. Varying amounts of minor to heavy browning to the paper, with scattered foxing and small binding holes present. Heavy offsetting along the top edge of two plates. Mostly minor soiling, with heavy soiling along the extremities of the Black money plate. Minor to heavy edgewear, varying among the plates, with some chipping, tearing and minor loss to most of them. Several with moderate chipping and loss along the extremities with the Coins of Charles II plate suffering very heavy chipping, tearing and loss along the extremities, especially along the binding edge This plate also has a 3 inch tear extending into the illustration near the lower left corner, with a slightly smaller tear at the lower center fore edge. This plate also creased along the lower part, with the left corner torn and crumpled. Bookseller Inventory # 005515
