"Breaking entirely new ground this book introduces an aspect of military medal collecting largely ignored by all but the initiated few. It is the only reference ever to be published about Boer War tribute medals and will remain the definitive work on the subject for many years to come. Enjoying wide international co-operation the author has drawn together a history and record of all known tribute medals awarded by grateful towns and villages throughout the British Isles and the Dominions to their volunteer soldiers returning home from the Boer War. All the medals described in this volume are illustrated in full colour except for a few specimens not available to the author, where black and white photographs were supplied from abroad. Many of these medals are unknown to the collecting world and the colour reproductions and meticulously researched text makes the book the only important reference to an unusual aspect of Boer War numismatics. The comprehensive appendices, where many medal rolls are published, for the first time in their rightful context, is another useful feature of this book."
