British and Irish Periodicals Part I
Manville, H. E. Numismatic Guide to British and Irish Periodicals 1731-1991. Encyclopaedia of British Numismatics Volume II, Part I (Archaeological). Co-published by A. H. Baldwin & Sons and Spink. London, 1993. Quarto, pp. xviii, (2), 449. Casebound in cloth. This second volume of the encyclopaedia is the next logical step after the index of British and Irish Numismatic Auction Catalogues. It is a bibliography of numismatic materials in British periodicals. In addition to numismatic publications, those in archaeology have also been included, especially since the first purely numismatic periodical was not published until 1836. It is hoped that the present volume will be useful in suggesting where material on specific topics may be found but, as is reflected in the title, it is intended only as a guide to the periodical (serial) literature. If this book helps to point the way to the material in sometimes obscure sources and saves research repetition, then its purpose will have been fulfilled.
