Lee presents the personal and professional sketchbook of sculptor and coin designer George T. Morgan (1845-1925), which includes sketches from about two decades of his career. It incorporates discussion of Morgan's life, family photos, family letters and documents, correspondence from the US Mint and Britain's Royal Mint, analysis and interpretations of Morgan's drawings, previously unpublished images, an illustrated catalog of Morgan's American numismatic works, and an appendix of primary source documents.

It’s always nice to see a numismatic book get some coverage outside of the Antiques/Collectibles field!
