Northern Song Dynasty Cash Variety Guide
Volume 3, Kosen Daizen, Huang Song to Xi Ning
Northern Song Dynasty Cash Variety Guide - Volume 3, Kosen Daizen, Huang Song to Xi Ning, by Norman F. Gorny.
Early in July, I broadcast an announcement that the sequel to my variety catalog for Northern Song cash was ready, although in a different format than originally planned. That first part, Volume 2 of Northern Song Dynasty Cash Variety Guide, was a re-presentation in English of the varieties of Northern Song cash from Song Yuan to Jing You found in volume 3 of KOSEN DAIZEN by Imai Teikichi (1888).
My original plan was to simply publish in a single second volume a sequel to my first book, which was based on Fugo Senshi. The sequel is based on Kosen Daizen. This work was started and then put on hold for many months, and the projected publication date was over a year late. As the work progressed it became obvious that the sequel would be too large to publish as a single book. Meanwhile, technology advanced to the point where I can conveniently publish what was intended to be volume 2 in smaller segments, as 40-page journal-sized books. With this new format, Volume 2, Kosen Daizen, Song Yuan to Jing You, became available July 7, 2003.
As of August 1, 2003, Volume 3, Kosen Daizen, Huang Song to Xi Ning, will be available. (The projected publication date was September 1.) It is published in large easy-to-read 8-1/2 x 11" format, 40 pages, stapled binding. Here are shown: (1) Front cover, (2) Table of Contents, (3) Example page 29, page 30 and page 35 from the body of the catalog.
Price is $8, plus postage as follows: USA $1.50, Canada $1.85, Foreign
(Europe, Asia, etc.) $4.50.
