MORE ON THE PARKER AND BAGSHAW NORWICH TOKENS

Parker Obv Bagshaw Obv

Agreeing with Mark Borckardt about the attribution of the T. Parker and Bagshaw Norwich tokens, David Powell writes:

The Token Book 2 The Norwich tokens of George Bagshaw and Thomas Parker are indeed English, and have long been recognised as such on this side of the Atlantic in such publications as Token Book 2 {Paul & Bente Withers, 2013}, and Bell's Unofficial Farthings {Bell, Whitmore & Sweeny, 1994}. The latter is itself an evolution of R.C. Bell's original work of 1975. Both pieces are quite common, and part of a group of about 15-20 similarly dated pieces from Norwich. Token Book 2 contains quite a bit of background information about both issuers, including a newspaper advert for Parker.

Paul Withers writes:

I have to say that I didn't know that there was a town called Norwich in the USA. I attach a page from our publication of 2013 The Token Book 2 of which a few copies are left, which is a comparatively well-researched account of the so-called unofficial farthings and small advertising tokens of the UK issued 1820-1901. Perhaps Mr Rulau might like to order a copy to discover what other errors may be lurking undetected in his volume ?

THE BOOK BAZARRE

WANTED: BONNEVILLE, Alphonse. Nouvelle encyclopedie monetaire ou traite des monnaies d’or et d’argent des divers peuples du monde. (Nouvelle edition du precedent ouvrage.) Paris, 1882, 1 vol. in-fol. De XVI et 220 pages, 200 planches.

I need a copy of this Bonneville work. I have the earlier edition but need the 1882 edition to check a few items. The book is very scarce although there is little demand for it so hard to say what the price should be. If anyone has a copy please offer it to me. If you don’t want to sell I would ask the favor of having the few pages devoted to Ecuador photocopied for me. I would pay quite liberally for these photocopies.
