The January 24, 2019 issue of CoinsWeekly (in an article by editor Ursula Kampmann) alerted me to the publication (in German) of a new book on the medals of the German
state of Baden. Here's a machine-generated English translation via Google of the publisher's description. -Editor
The conversion of the map of Europe by Napoleon made until the summer of 1806 from the unified margraviate Baden a colorful, much larger state on the Upper Rhine, the
Grand Duchy of Baden. All numismatic testimonies of these newly united villages and estates are gathered here and can be found in alphabetic order from A to Nursing Homes to Z
like rooms. Around 600 medals and pilgrimage signs from the Renaissance to Classicism give a dazzling mosaic of the complex history of Baden.
The river of history is marked by world-changing events, but also contains regional concerns that have not made waves internationally. But they too belong to the cultural
history of humanity and were given medals. On the one hand, there are pieces on the execution of the reformer Johannes Huss in Constance in 1415 or on the birth of the Habsburg
heir to the throne in 1716, but on the other hand also award medals for special achievements at the Gymnasium Durlach or for the second most beautiful mare of Fürstenberg.
For the first time the Baden medals and pilgrimage signs are so completely assembled here. The enlarged pictures open windows into the eventful history of the Upper Rhine, a
central region of Europe.
