Does anyone have a copy of "Great Britain Maundy Coinage Since 1822: A Guide to the History, Ceremony and Coinage of the Royal Maundy"? According to https://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v11n13a33.html it was published at http://site440.mysite4now.net/hoschcoins/site1/Portals/0/MAUNDYwork.pdf but it is no longer there, and the Wayback Machine doesn't have a copy either (just a copy of another book by Charles R Hosch: https://web.archive.org/web/20090207110941/http://site440.mysite4now.net/hoschcoins/site1/Portals/0/COIN%20DESIGNERS.pdf).

I have copies of both editions (1977 and 1992) of Brian Robinson's book.

I think the other thing, "Great Britain Maundy Coinage Since 1822: A Guide to the History, Ceremony and Coinage of the Royal Maundy" sounds like a PDF of a web page (possibly quite large) by Hosch rather than ever having been a printed book.

If I interpret correctly, Hosch's website appears to have ben put up in 2008 and disappeared around 2012, which is the last time the Wayback Machine sampled it. Curiously, though it says it sampled it 28 times, there appears to be no data on the Machine for the site appart from the homepage as 21/11/2008, but as you had to register with the site then they might have been unable to record anything more (or am I being more than usually stupid?)

Yes it looks like it was only published as a .pdf - not sure if registration was required as one of the other .pdf books there was archived.
