(The jacket untitled unlike the standard edition) includes hand typed and hand-written lists of values for 1983 and 1984, Good condition and a historically important insight into the workings of the author prior to the publication of the second edition in 1985. Book 'English Copper Tin and Bronze Coins in the British Museum 1558-1958' by C.W.Peck Second edition 1964, the copy owned by Michael J.Freeman, no dust jacket, in fair condition and including notes and annotations by Mr. Freeman who acquired many of Peck's collection when it was sold through Spink. We have Michael's school teacher to thank for his extensive insights into the bronze penny series as she attracted his interest through a charity collection the teacher administered, requesting the children to donate pennies Michael was immediately attracted to the variety he noticed in the collection spurring him on to extensive studies of the series leading to his book first published in 1970. A rare opportunity to acquire historically significant and original workings.
