illustrated by b/w. photo's.; cover illustration shows manual coining press at Lutwvches Manufactory, Birmingham, about 1790; "this series of 30 industrial tokens and medals begins with the first and best of the 18th-century tokens. the Parys Mountain Copper Mines penny of 1787. and ends with the medal commemorating the opening of the Queen Alexandra Dock in Cardiff. 1907. Most of the tokens and medals chosen for illustration are pictorial and show in greater or lesser detail the industrial architecture, the technology, and the engineering works of the period mainly before 1860. This booklet is thus more medallic than numismatic in scope, and it is upon technical matters that the commentary concentrates. Not all the pieces are Welsh in the sense that they were produced by companies operating in Wales; though they each relate in some way to Wales, either directly or in their portrayal of technology well-known in the Wales of the period."; unpaginated.
