Ed Krivoniak of Pittsburgh is an old friend and longtime collector of New Zealand and Australian tokens. He writes:
I've been looking for this book on the Internet for about two years but can't seem to locate it. The only Google listings are for library catalogues and bibliographies. The listing is as follows: Humberstone, Vaughn. Merchants making money : biographies of 15 issuers and 4 makers of New Zealand tradesmen's tokens / by Vaughn Humberstone. - [Wellington, N.Z. : V. Humberstone, 2004] - 113 p. : ill., maps ; 30 cm. Includes bibliographical references (p. 105-113). ISBN Price unknown (pbk.)
I would also be interested in any book or article on the Australian token makers Taylor, Stokes, or Stokes & Martin. Thanks in advance for any help you or the club can give.
I hadn't heard of this book before, nor am I familiar with the token makers. But we have knowledgeable readers around the world, so hopefully one of you can help Ed with his quest. -Editor
