Spink have just undertaken quality reprints of the much in demand and long out of print volumes 1 of this monumental work.
This volume had been commanding high prices and thus become out of the reach of the average collector so it was decided, in consultation with the author, to produce a limited reprint to satisfy current demand.
This is an unchanged reprint but have been refreshed with new colour dust-jackets, produced on quality paper and bound in Wibalin Buckram so the feel is identical to the originals. The reproduction of the photographs is of a high standard and we feel that the quality is very consistent with the originals.
Each medal listed is treated in the same detailed way to give, arranged in chronological order, full details of its subject, style and designer, size, metals, in which it was struck, rarity, bibliographical references and present locations in the major public collections. Additional notes fill in the background of the circumstances of issue, where known, and other information relating to the subject or person represented. Detailed indexes of people, events, inscriptions, designers, etc., complete the volume.
