The E-Sylum:  Volume 8, Number 49, November 20, 2005, Article 6

TWO HOWARD BERLIN BOOKS

Ralf Boepple writes: "I just wanted to mention two new
publications that I found in a catalog of new publications
at a local book fair.  The author, Mr. Berlin is a NLG
member and lives in Wilmington, Delaware, according to a
review on Amazon. I wonder whether he is a subscriber to
the E-Sylum.

The first item had its publishing date in the meantime
postponed to December 2005 and appears not to be directly
numismatic, but nevertheless of significance for researchers.
Howard M. Berlin  'World Monetary Units. An Historical
Dictionary, Country by Country' (McFarland & Co., 2005,
hardcover, 200 pp.)

"...covers the monetary systems of 203 countries and four
confederations, It provides historical and orthographical
information for all monetary systems according to country.
Countries are arranged alphabetically from Afghanistan to
Zimbabwe." (from the catalog text)

The second book has originally been published in 2001
in a hardcover edition, but it might be interesting to
know that it is now also available in paperback. It is
from the same author, Howard M. Berlin:
'The Coins and Banknotes of Palestine under British
Mandate, 1927-1947', McFarland & Co., 2005, 170 pp.,
88 photos (26 color), maps, ISBN 0-7864-2445-1, and it
"...is an authoritative guide to the coins and banknotes
of Palestine under the British Mandate. Coverage includes
the mysterious 1927 Holyland Token, counterfeit issues,
and vignettes of the religious sites featured on banknotes.
Appendices present the text of the British Mandate for
Palestine, catalogue numbering systems for Palestine
coins and banknotes, and a checklist for collectors.'
