ORIGINAL SCHJOTH? 

   Mike Jones would like to thank our readers for their detailed 
   replies to his questions on Oriental numismatic literature.  He 
   would also like to clarify his question on the Schjoth Chinese 
   Currency book.  What he seeks is information on the 
   original edition, in original format.   "...the original was issued 
   with flimsy paper covers;  in fact, the pages were of better 
   quality than the covers ... have any of the readers ever owned or 
   actually held such a copy?  ....if  seen in an auction catalog, 
   then which one?   Again, I am not talking about rebound copies 
   of the original but THE original with paper covers.  Thanks." 

   On the subject of Kann, George Kolbe adds: "there are TWO 
   editions of Kann's  "The Currencies of China," 1926 & 1927. 
   But, oops, the 1978 reprint is a facsimile of the first edition, 
   lacking, if memory serves, a plate or two."
