I saw that book in the American Numismatic Society library when I was there last January. If you go to the ANS website (www.numismatics.org), and click on "Library Catalog" you can pull down the box for "author" and enter "Groslier". This will pull up the book. The coins made up just a chapter in the larger work on monuments and antiquities in Cambodia.

A web search turned up a photo and some biographical information on Groslier. -EditorGeorge Groslier (1887-1945), historian, curator and author was the motivating force behind much of the revival of interest in traditional Cambodian arts and crafts. He dedicated his life and career to Cambodia, accumulating many titles and honors along the way. He was a champion of the arts, a man of science, photographer and painter, a novelist and writer, and an ethnologist who infused all of his works with passion and sensitivity.
Groslier was born in Cambodia on February 4, 1887. He died in Cambodia, the country he loved, under torture as a Japanese prisoner on June 18, 1945. His genius lives on through his works.
