Document Description
TitleThe coins of England : a sketch of the progress of the English coinage, from the earliest period to the present time.
DescriptionThe title page is a chromolithograph. Signed: 'On stone by F. Bauer. H. Woods & Co. lith.'. The coins on the plates are lithographed variously in gold, silver and copper. Gilt edges. Light blue endpapers and pastedowns. The turn-ins and the board edges are lined in gold. Red paper over boards, with a 'leaf' and horizontal rib pattern. Both covers blocked identically. On the head, the tail and the fore-edge, a raised pattern of strapwork, stems and leaves is blocked in gold. On the upper and lower parts of each cover, decoration in the shape of clasps is blocked, with the centre of each clasp being blocked in gold on the spine. On the spine the title: '| English coins|' is raised and blocked in gold, in gothic lettering.
