BOOKS IN ENGLISH ON ORIENTAL COINS
Mike Jones writes:
First, let me mention that I started collecting
oriental coins (mostly pre-Meiji Japanese coins) in the mid to
late '70s. I learned quickly that books in the english language
about oriental coins were really hard to come by.
I want to ask readers of The E-Sylum whether they own, or
know of, or have any knowledge of, the scarcity of the
- 1. Anything written by Ramsden in Yokohama earlier this century on Oriental coins
- 2. The true rarity of Munro's "Coins of Japan", 1904 edition
- 3. Schjoth on Chinese Currency, original edition
- 4. Polder on pre-historical Japan
- 5. Original "Kann" on Chinese
- 6. Toda on Annamese
I have never seen Polder original...had half a dozen Ramsden...
also same number of Munro...three original Schjoth...a few
Kann... Toda never had... Feedback, please."
