The book is very nicely organized (just like any other Krause Publication books) and detailed. If you are a collector of Mughal India or Indian Princely State coins, this book is a must have for you. One area i think this book can be expanded if Ancient India coins can be added to it which is currently missing.Overall well worth the money and i would certainly recommend.
Krause has become the de facto standard for medieval and modern coins worldwide. There are a number of volumes and then there is a volume that deals exclusively with the coins of South Asia. This is the volume that deals with the coins of South Asia. This volume was republished in India.The publisher, Marudhar, invited a large number of Indian scholar to contribute to this volume -- all of whom were experts in one or more areas of South Indian coinage. Thus a large number of previously unlisted coins were added, and suggested prices of coins were all brought up to date. The revision and addition is visible most in the section that deals with Indian coins because it is scores of Indian scholars who contributed most to this volume.If anyone collects South Asian Coins, particularly Indian coins, then this catalog is a must-have for him. I highly recommend this volume. I also wish to remind my readers that the only other (imperfect) alternative is to buy scores of different volumes, not all of which give such exhaustive information.
First of all, this is an excellent source of information on South Asian coinage during the Mughal and Colonial periods. If it ended there, all would be fine. However, while it does list Indian coins post 1947 Partition, there is no inclusion of Pakistan and Bangladesh. While this is a minor omission due to the relatively short period of time, It leaves one suspecting that the motive behind it was political in nature and a result of animosity between Pakistan and India, which should have no place in a scholarly work like this. Whatever the case, I would recommend that future editions include these countries so that the book is truly South Asian.
Great resource! Well overdue for a new edition. Unfortunately my loved original copy of SAC is now not so rare!! The new edition reflects the huge interest in these coins that has built in the last 10 years and as a consequence ( and my only criticism) the values do not sometimes reflect the higher prices paid on the open market.
