London, British Museum Publications / Colonnade Books, 1978
(28.5 cm), xii (2), 244 pp., illustrations. Publisher’s boards, pictorial dust jacket. - A chronological list of 232 buildings commemorated in medallic form, with a biographical register of 136 architects (or architectural firms), and of 90 medallists, sculptors, and publishers of medals. The utility of the evidence presented cannot be overstated: 65 of the buildings depicted on these medals have been demolished; a further 29 have undergone major rebuilding or alteration. “This is an admirable catalogue which should grace every numismatic, architectural, or topographical library” (review by J. Mordaunt Crook, in The Times Literary Supplement, 17 February 1978, p.190). ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
