About this Item

First Edition. I read through this entire book in one sitting--it is both informative and fun. These trade tokens are different times of history, the English or American government just didn't mint enough small coins, but merchants of course needed them for change, so they would strike their own! Morris' book gives little vignettes of some of these booksellers, describes the coins, photo illustrations where appropriate. Just for fun, he also had eleven (including Bird & Bull) printers strike new tokens just for this publication, and they are included in a folder. Book & folder in slipcase. Fine overall, minor toning to blue leather spine, this is just a great production by a true bibliophile. Errata, facsimile letter, laid in. Band for token folder also laid in, but I'm afraid there's ghost of pencil writing to part of it (my own, erroneously thinking it was scratch paper and scribbling notes from a phone call!).
