Title: Comments on the World of Coins bookshelf
Post by: Figleaf on September 26, 2014, 01:59:33 PM
This thread is to keep the bookshelf thread clean, but still give you the opportunity to discuss it. It is for comments on how the bookshelf works, the rights free status of the books and discussion of which books should be taken up or deleted.

If you want to comment on the use or utility of the content of individual books or series of books, please open a separate thread. These book(s) will be taken up into the bibliography.

If we wish to add a new link, should it be done via this thread?

Izotz will answer that one.

Please keep in mind that the book of the bookshelf reside on the WoC server. There are no links to books on other servers. You can post those on the board "Useful links".

Thanks, Figleaf, there is a lot of useful information there. And I'm sure there will be even more with the help of other members.

As suggested, we are talking about copyright free documents that we want to upload to WoC server. For that matter, send a private message to me specifying how many files they are, and what size. If they are not too big, I will give you an E-mail address and I will upload them for you. For more than, let's say, 10Mb we will try a workaround so that you can upload them yourselves.

I added a 400 page book on older Lithuanian coins (Author: Ruzas). The pdf can be downloaded from the web site of the Money Museum in Vilnius, but it is hard to find and documentation on these coins is really scarce. Now, the book is just a click away...

Two more additions. Natko recommended a book on Spanish civil war tokens (author: Ovelleiro). The book was available without rights on the net already. Now it is on the WoC bookshelf. It is in Spanish, but you can copy/paste text in Google translate and the book is very worthwhile.

Dalton and Hamer is still the standard book on the British tokens of the 18th century. Now, thanks to a tip from constanius, you can get a searchable pdf from the WoC bookshelf.

Maybe an interesting book to add to the WoC bookshelf: The currency and coinage of Gibraltar, 1702-2014 (http://www.gibraltarnationalmint.gov.gi/GibraltarCoinageHigh.pdf) written by Richard JM Garcia MBE and published by the Government of Gibraltar earlier this year.

There is a copyright notice in the book. Are you sure it is free of rights?

There is no real need for it to be uploaded on the WoC server so people can download it here, I assume a link to the document on that website will do, although I believe there was another topic for links and the Bookshelf was only for downloading books, but I am not sure about that. The Gibraltar National Mint is owned by the Government of Gibraltar and since the Government of Gibraltar published the book, we can link to that file without a problem.

Good points. To get the link in the right place, I amended the intro to the bookshelf and started a list of "don't know" links. This will give us more flexibility where necessary. I'll see if I can contact the people behind the web site and get permission for something better.

Some time ago, I set out to find an electronic copy of Josef Neumann's Bschreibung der bekanntesten Kupfermünzen (Prague, 1858) for the WoC bookshelf. So far, I found volumes 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6. Can anyone help me find the missing parts?

Would you like to be able to do what THCoins does with exotic scripts? Now, a good place to start is the World of Coins bookshelf (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,28876.msg184838.html#msg184838). Following a lead from a recent post (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,44049.msg276899.html#msg276899), we just added four papers by John Deyell, introductions on reading Ahom, Brahmi, Karoshti and Nagari on coins. Practice will do the rest. Thank you for allowing us to post these, Mr. Deyell.
