Excerpt from Coins of the Jews
The following work may be virtually considered a Second Edition of my History of the Jewish Coinage and Money in the Old and New Testaments,1 embracing as it does nearly all the original matter contained in that volume, as well as the additional information printed in' its It is further enriched by the critical corrections gained from all papers on the. Subject that I have been able to obtain, so that the History of the Coins of the Jews, from the earliest times to the destruction of Jerusalem and the building of jelia Capitolina by order of the Emperor Hadrian, is brought up to the knowledge of the present day.
It is much to be regretted that no thorough representative collection of Jewish coins exists in England, though several private collectors, as Dr. Churchill Babington, the Rev. S. S. Lewis and Dr. John Evans, have in their cabinets many rare and valuable examples. The late Mr. Wigan's cabinet of Jewish coins was not acquired for the National Collection, but a hope may be expressed that the collection formed by the Rev. H. C. Reichardt, which contains some of the more remarkable specimens of the Jewish Coinage, may eventually find a home at the British Museum.
