Earlier this year BNR Press published World War II Finance: Canada and Newfoundland by Dick Dunn, Dan Freeland and Harold Kroll.
The 48-page softcover book is the size and shape of a glossy magazine issue, bound with staples. It's very well illustrated with large color images throughout.
The three authors are avid collectors of the described material, Canadian and Newfoundland war bonds, saving certificates and other fiscal material related to the funding of World War II expenses. The listed items are priced. Items known to have been issued, but not accounted for in any of the collections examined are unpriced.
This is an obscure collecting area not well documented anywhere before the massive 1995 Schwan-Boling work, World War II Remembered. For collectors and students of World War II numismatics, this should be an interesting library addition. Covered are Canadian bonds, ephemera associated with their issuance, and related items such as War Savings certificates, scrip and stamps. Newfoundland is given a similar cataloging treatment.
The publisher maintains a web site where readers can find updated, corrections, revisions and other noticed relating to the book. See
