At my request Alex Smith of Spink forwarded this information about a new publication,
Coinage and Currency in Eighteenth Century Britain: The Provincial Coinage by David Dykes.
'Written by an expert in the field and drawing on recent research, this book aims to put Britain's 18th-century provincial token coinage into the context of the currency problems of the time. On the basis of a wide range of both documentary and secondary sources it examines its major manufacturers and their intentions, and through profiles of many of the issuers involved it sets out to give a living dimension to a bygone monetary phenomenon.'
Full title: Coinage and Currency in Eighteenth Century Britain: The Provincial Coinage
Hardback; 400 pages, illustrated throughout in colour. 210 x 276 mm
