Hawkins, Edward, Augustus W. Franks and Herbert A. Grueber. MEDALLIC ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE HISTORY OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND TO THE DEATH OF GEORGE II. London, 1885. Two volumes. 8vo, original brown cloth, gilt. xxxiii, (1), 724; (4), 866 pages; frontispieces; text illustrations. Ex Norwich Free Library, with their bookplate and markings. Still a very good set. The scarce original edition. Though written over a century ago, Medallic Illustrations remains an indispensable text, covering the topic from its beginnings up to 1760, and is a key source of information on British medals issued during this period relating to America.
