British Historical Medals 1760-1960


Background

Thank heavens a reference in English! This is Volume 1 of a series, the second of which presumably brings us up to date from 1960. Since I'm really only interested in the French Revolutionary and First Empire (sorry, Regency!) I haven't picked up the other volumes.
 
This is unabashedly a book about British medals, the few medals that have Napoleon on them are usually to gloat over some discomfiture, or, the big exception, the Mudie series of 1820.
