NEW BOOK: MILESTONE COINS BY KEN BRESSETT

As mentioned recently by publisher Dennis Tucker, Whitman Publishing 
is about to release a new book by Ken Bressett. The following is 
from the firm's press release:

"Whitman Publishing will debut a new book by Kenneth Bressett at the 
ANA World’s Fair of Money in Milwaukee, August 8. Milestone Coins: A 
Pageant of the World’s Most Significant and Popular Money (176 pages, 
full color, hardcover) will retail for $29.95.

"Milestone Coins shares the interesting stories behind more than 100 
famous coins and tokens, as told by the award-winning author and 
longtime editor of the Guide Book of United States Coins (the best- 
selling “Red Book”). In ten chapters Ken Bressett covers the breadth 
of civilization as seen in coinage—exploring every time period and 
geographical area from ancient Greece to modern America.

"“Each of these coins has a story that appeals to collectors,” said 
Bressett. “Some are rare ‘keys’ needed to complete a set. Others 
are desirable for their beauty or historical connection. In a sense, 
they are all classics that never go out of style.”"

[The book’s chapters include: 
The Ancient World
Biblical Coins
The Roman World
Money in Medieval Europe
The World of Islam
Merry Olde England
The Reign in Spain
Cathay and the Orient
Emerging Concepts in Coinage
