Author Rasiel "Ras" Suarez forwarded this note about the new edition of his book, The Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial Coins.
Rasiel Suarez is pleased to announce the release of the second edition of 2005's Encyclopedia of Roman Imperial Coins. While keeping the same general format as the well-received original book, this second edition has been vastly expanded to include the entries of all major reference books on the period covered while extending this coverage through the thousand-year reign of the Byzantine empire.
New to the second edition is an effort to compile market rarity and pricing through the sales of hundreds of thousands of auction sales. While already a strong feature of the first edition, there has also been an emphasis placed on upgrading the color photography used. Biographies on the many rulers of the Roman empire have been expanded and draw on contemporary literature as well as new research to provide concise yet informative introductions to each section.
More information available on the publisher's website at http://www.dirtyoldbooks.com. 1,481pp, $150 available October 2010.
The web site includes .pdf files of two sample chapters. Would anyone like to write a review of the book?
