  • A book published in 1848 by Alexander Somerville, born 1811
  • The first part of the talk 'Saving, Spending and Family History' that I gave on 26th February 2012. There are nice colour illustrations of some of the coins in my talk.

The cover shows the Queen meeting our Patron, the Earl of Lauderdale on the occasion of her Silver Jubilee.
