A book on Crusader and Islamic coins


Valentinian

Recommended Posts

I am interested in both Crusader and Turkoman figural coins. I found a reference to this book:
The Jeselsohn Collection of Coins of the Holy Land. Volume IV. Islamic and Crusader Coinage / David Jeselsohn and Aram Vardanyan.
I have not seen the book. It is new, dated 2022. Can anyone tell us about it?
Are the photographs excellent (in color?). Is there a lot of good text with them? Does it have Turkoman figural coins? Is the collection of Crusader coins extensive?  Is it strong in early coins of Antioch and Edessa? What does it add to a good library? Does it have anything to add to Metcalf, Coinage of the Crusades and the Latin East ?
  I can get it shipped to the US for a total of about $78. Is it worth it?

According to information on Dr. Vardanyan's academia.edu page, the scope is limited to mints in Jund Filistin (Palestine) and Jund al-Urdunn (Jordan), from the 7th-13th centuries. I would not expect any Turcoman figural coins to be included. The Crusader section accounts for 35 pages.

Thank you. Looking on Academia.edu was a good idea.
