Metcalf Crusader coinage reference question

(1/1)

Gert:
Can anybody tell me if there are major differences between the first and second editions of Metcalf's reference on Crusader coinage?
Regards
Gert

Anaximander:
As regards Metcalf's Coinage of the Crusades and the Latin East in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, only the second edition gets cited widely. It's twice size of the first edition, and the numbering of coins is different.  It's a source of some frustration using the earlier edition. 

I just updated the |Numiswiki entry to show the earlier edition (there are two entries, actually, one with "Crusades" and one with "Crusaders").

Royal Numismatic Society, Special  Publication no. 28. Second, revised edition (London, 1995). 578 pages, 48 plates, maps.
Royal Numismatic Society, Special Publication No. 15. (London, 1983. First Edition). 248 pages, 36 plates.

Gert:
Thanks a lot - Exactly what I wanted to know. Have to look out for the 2nd edition. (Any leads appreciated, btw)
Regards
Gert
