It comprises a well illustrated, comprehensive catalogue of the coins and medals associated with Martin Luther and the Reformation. The 213 copper engravings of medals include not only all of those concerning Martin Luther, but those related to other reformers like Brenz, Bucer, Calvin, Melanchton and Zwingli, as well as Cromwell, Erasmus and Dürer. Dekesel J63. Hirsch 67. Lipsius 204. Smith 57: “Most comprehensive compilation and study of Reformation medals, particularly strong on Luther and the Reformation in Germany.”
