This long awaited volume, the last work to be undertaken by Antony Gunstone before his premature death in 1984, catalogues some 2,350 coins, the largest number of any single Sylloge volume. The coins come from forty-five metropolitan and provincial museums lying within an arc running fromSouthampton to Peterborough (excluding East Anglia, which was previously published). The volume includes a good run of Celtic coins mostly from local finds, and the Anglo-Saxon and later issues down to the beginning of Edward I's reign are well represented. The particular strength of thesecollections, however, lies in the coinages of Edward the Confessor, Harold II, and William I, drawing material from several large nineteenth-century hoards found in London and Sussex. As always, the catalogue is fully illustrated and is equipped with a survey of the collections, a bibliography, andfour indexes.
