ONLINE BOOK: ANNAM AND ITS MINOR CURRENCY BY ED. TODA

Regarding last week's featured website (art-hanoi.com/collection),
Dave Kellogg writes: "I know of a related website that I could not
reach through the link above.  It is an on-line copy of Ed Toda's book
(1882) on ancient Annamese (Vietnamese) cash coins.  It contains an
interesting coin identifier feature which is a huge help for those of
us who are marginally illiterate with Chinese characters.  Here it is:
coin identifier"

[The book is titled ANNAM AND ITS MINOR CURRENCY.  From the web page:
"This book written over 100 years ago still remains the main reference
for all collectors of Vietnamese cash coins."  -Editor]

Dave adds: "That web page statement, "remains the main reference", is
a bit of an exaggeration.  That would have been true a couple of years
ago if it said, "in English".  There are some French references with
an excellent reputation.  Then, in 2004 Barker published Part 1 of
what will undoubtedly become the definitive English reference.
Nevertheless, Toda's on-line copy is still really helpful, and readers
should know of it.  Perhaps, it is still the main reference in that
more people have access to it."
