One of only 100 copies printed. A scholarly and at times entertaining essay on this interesting numismatic backwater, leavened by some marvelously obscure literary and historical references. A total of fifty-four tokens are described. Davisson, Handbook: “This is a detailed discussion of these pieces including news reports and material written at the time the tokens were issued.” Manville 629. The inscription is dated January 13, 1904.
