A well-preserved example of this edition, which is a bit of a bibliographical mystery. To quote Manville, this is “an undated reprinting of the plates from the 1762–3 edition of Tables of English Silver and Gold Coins and Ruding’s three editions of 1817, 1819 and 1840, preceded by a list of contents (pp. 1–4). Although sometimes dated to the 1870s, this may be a centenary volume.” Includes early engraved representations of North American colonial coins. Manville 426.
