I received this book today, and it is massive. I haven't had a chance to work with it yet, but will post an opinion once I have.

Another amazing effort. Not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination, and I have heard some griping about the population numbers. On the other hand, the _only_ reason I have any reservations about this work is because it represents the entirety of my collecting interest, so I know enough to nit-pick. Fortunately, updates are occurring -- the first was on CD-ROM about two years ago, and included many nice appendicies regarding the State Bank. I have contributed some discoveries that will hopefully be included in the next update, coming soon.

By far the most awe-inspiring part of this work is the number of scrip issues. I wouldn't even know where to start on that part of the material if I had to duplicate it.
