JOHN WHITMORE'S TOKEN COLLLECTORS COMPANION AVAILABLE

Allan Davisson provided the following information on a new
book for Conder token collectors.  He adds: "It’s a great
work, a major production on John Whitmore’s part."

NEW & NECESSARY! THE TOKEN COLLECTORS COMPANION by John
Whitmore.  A 390 page A4 format volume, hardbound (or
leather if you prefer) with

* THE TOKEN TRACER 1700-1860; a guide to all the legends,
dates only or design only tokens issued in this entire period.
Dalton and Hamer, Australasian, the Bell volumes including
Unofficial Farthings, Withers—Coin-Weights & 19th Century
Copper, Breton, Cobwright, Davis & Waters, Dalton (silver)
and more.

* An extensive listing of major auction prices of Dalton and
Hamer tokens going back to the Jan sales in 1983 and including
the Noble sale of 1998 and the major DNW sales.

* A supplement, with four plates, to Unofficial Farthings.
And a price guide.

* A definitive listing of Inn tokens.
* A comprehensive index to Hawkins.
* Bibliography and general index.

This is a tremendous volume, the result of painstaking work
and an extensive depth of knowledge and experience on the
part of John Whitmore. I began with only a proof copy in
sheets that I used extensively. I now have an early copy of
the work itself. he binding and dustjacket are notably high
quality.

I happily agreed to distribute this outstanding work in the
United States.  The cost is modest for all this offers, $125
hardbound or $190 half leather. (Prices are postpaid to U.S.
addresses. Delivery will be in early June.)
