BOOKS IN ENGLISH ON ORIENTAL COINS 

   Mike Jones writes: First, let me mention that I started collecting 
   oriental coins (mostly pre-Meiji Japanese coins) in the mid to 
   late '70s.  I learned quickly that books in the english language 
   about oriental coins were really hard to come by. 

   I want to ask readers of The E-Sylum whether they own, or 
   know of, or have any knowledge of, the scarcity of the 
   following titles: 

   1. Anything written by Ramsden in Yokohama earlier 
       this century on Oriental coins 
   2. The true rarity of  Munro's "Coins of Japan", 1904 edition 
   3. Schjoth on Chinese Currency, original edition 
   4. Polder on pre-historical Japan 
   5. Original "Kann" on Chinese 
   6. Toda on Annamese 

   I have never seen Polder original...had half a dozen Ramsden... 
   also same number of Munro...three original Schjoth...a few 
   Kann... Toda never had...  Feedback,  please."
