Description
The essays contained in this volume fondly remember and pay tribute to the memory of Nicholas G Rhodes who passed away in 2011. As a numismatist and collector Rhodes left behind his mark in his many publications (provided in this volume), mostly on the coins and currency systems of the Eastern and north-eastern parts of the subcontinent. The contributors to the volume have written on various aspects of the field of Indian coinage, a Theme that was so dear to Rhodes. The essays delve deep into coins in catalogues, medals, medallions, seals, particular Coin types (dynastic and non-dynastic issues), commerce and monetization and suchlike. The essays cover diverse areas and different periods of Indian history which experienced varieties of monetary issues. Rich in bibliography, maps, graphs and images of coins, the volume generates new knowledge in the field concerned.
