Full Title: Obsolete Paper Money Issued by Banks in the United States 1782 - 1866
Subtitle: A Study and Appreciation for the Numismatist and Historian
Author: Q. David Bowers
Publisher: Whitman
Date Published: 2006
Pages: ~600

This book is a compendium of information about early American paper money. The book begins with a brief overview of colonial money, including the first indented bills from 1690 and wampum.

It is generally laid out in a chronological fashion, and includes chapters about specific engravers and their work. This is a very informative book that seems to be well researched and cites references from virtually every book on the subject of money that has yet been published.

I am really enjoying this book.

Although it is laid out mostly chronologically, it does jump back anf froth, especially in the begining, and again with certain subjects ( Wild cats, Counterfeits, etc).

I think that this is unavaidable given the breadth of subject matter that is covered.
