BOOK REVIEW: ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ROMAN IMPERIAL COINS

Jim Barry writes: "Having recently purchased a copy of Raisiel
Suarez's "Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial Coins", I find this
new work takes a somewhat novel approach to the subject of
collecting these coins.  The large number of clear and color
photographs of coin types is both visually enjoyable and welcomed.
The combination of coin types that can be matched with their RIC
numbers is especially helpful to the beginning and intermediate
collector of Imperial coins.

While no attempt is made to give prices for coins - an often
useless item anyway - the rarity of various coin types gives
some indication of what prices of coins are likely to be.
Overall this is a likeable and user-friendly new book on the
subject in spite of some errors that might have been eliminated
with better proof reading.  Clearly this book would make a fine
addition to a collector's library."
