New Book - The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine
« on: November 03, 2014, 05:59:27 AM »
The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine
 
by Hugh Cloke and Lee Toone
 
A comprehensive catalogue and survey of the output of the London mint from AD 296 to 325. From when Constantius invaded Britain to regain the Britannic Empire back from Allectus to its closure in 325 when Constantine began to shift his power base to the East, the London mint was responsible for a vast output of Roman coinage. In The Roman Imperial Coinage (RIC) around 600 types were listed; the authors of this book have increased the number of known types to 995 and have illustrated nearly 95% of these with images on plates facing the catalogue tables in sylloge style. They have also provided a hoard census which lists numbers for each type found in four major hoards. This enables an objective rarity value to be assigned to each coin type.
 
Supported with a comprehensive narrative, indices and a concordance with RIC, this will become the standard reference work on the London mint for years to come.

Thank you all for your support. I only hope it lives up to expectations. I will be signing some copies with my co-author but not until September as that is the soonest we can get both of us and the books together.

In the meantime I doubt it will be possible although I will check when I meet my publisher next week. I'll post a response here if it is possible.

Best wishes

Lee

I am pleased to be able to let you all know that ‘The London Mint of Constantius and Constantine’ has finally been published. I received my hard copy last Saturday. As ever, with these things, it always takes longer than expected to deliver a finished product but it is now available from Spink priced at £50. A problem with some plates meant that they had to be reprinted. A short piece about the book was published in the recent Spink ‘Insider’ magazine and I can send a PDF of the article to anyone who would like to see it. Simply PM me with your email address.

Alternatively the whole magazine is available here –
http://issuu.com/spinkandson/docs/spink_insider_22?e=2874488/14377113
 
Spink will have the book available at the Birmingham (UK) Coin Fair on 13th September and Coinex in London on 25th and 26th September. Hugh and I will be present at both shows and will be happy to answer any questions about the book and/or sign copies if required.
 
Spink will also have a stand at the International Numismatic Congress in Taormina, Sicily where copies should be available for inspection and purchase. I will also be there for a few days and again will be happy to answer any questions or discuss the book in general.

If anyone is after a signed copy by mail order then they will need to email Spink with a specific request and they should be available at the beginning of October after the shows have taken place. Sorry it’s a bit convoluted but Hugh is based in MD, USA and I am here in Yorkshire, UK.

Spink USA should also have copies available in early October.

If anyone has any direct questions for me, please feel to reply to this post or send me a PM.
 
Best wishes
