This is a record of the collection of Robert Edward Hart (born 1878).  As might be suspected from a collection there are many regions and cities represented, with no real area which receives specific attention.  Interspersed with all the Greek coins from the various cities are some Roman Provincial, but these are minimal.  While this collection does not particularly focus on any particular theme it is reasonably strong in some areas such as Syracuse, Alexander III, Philip III, Corinth and even a reasonable coverage of Alexandria under the Romans.

The photographs are good and it is easy to compare description and photo.

Personally I do not get much benefit from the book but if your collecting interests are any of the above listed areas this could be a helpful addition
