BRITISH TOKEN LITERATURE RESEARCH 

   Harold Welch writes: "I would like to put out an appeal to 
   E-Sylum readers.  I am working on a book that I call The 
   Virtuoso's Arrangement.  It deals with the classic literature 
   of the 18th and 19th century token coinage of Great Britain. 
   The work covers three basic areas: 

      1. A description and review of each work. 
      2. A biography of the authors and past owners of the works. 
      3. An inventory of individually identifiable copies of the 
          various titles. 

   It is in this third area that I seek help.  If you own any of the 
   classic token references such as Atkins, Birchall, Boyne, 
   Conder, Cotton, Dalton, Davis, Denton, Golding, Hammond, 
   Kent, Longman, Perkins, Pye, Sharp, Spence, or Waters, that 
   have prior ownership markings, bookplates, annotations, 
   letters or other materials laid-in, special bindings, etc. or 
   anything else that makes your copy unique, I would be very 
   grateful to hear from you.  I also want to know about all copies 
   of numbered editions (such as Davis' 19th Century Tokens or 
   Water's Middlesex Notes). 

   You will be given credit in the book, or if you prefer, I will 
   maintain your privacy.  Either way, PLEASE contact me.  It is 
   my desire to make this work as complete as possible, but that 
   is impossible without the help of fellow collectors.  My thanks 
   to all of those who have already helped out.
