Medallic Portraits of Admiral Vernon By John W. Adams & Dr. Fernando Chao (h)
The text centers about some of the most interesting medals related to the Americas, specifically the revival of British Flore, it was said, by Admiral Vernon, who took Porto Bello with six ships only, on November 22, 1739, capturing a Spanish stronghold. The victory against Spain was widely acclaimed, and thousands of cheap medals were struck to celebrate the occasion. These became highly coveted souvenirs. As to whether Vernon was a hero, as to whether all the events actually happened, and other matters were subject to wide historical interpretation. In this masterful book the authors discuss the military engagement in detail, give both sides of the stories, and offer the subtitle, Medals Sometimes Lie, which gives a hint at the mystery and adventure awaiting the reader. In 240 pages and with hundreds of illustrations, the medals are described in detail, as are their issuance, varieties, and other characteristics, with a rich numismatic background. The volume itself is a production of high elegance, created with the assistance of famous numismatic antiquarian bookseller George Kolbe, hardbound with a beautiful dust jacket, with full color plates, and with high quality paper. The book will be a good read for a weekend and, if you are prompted to investigate the medals and collect them, will be an indispensable guide. List price: $95.00. Special Price $76.00
Shipping is $7 for the first book, $3 each additional book.
