Recipients of Crystal Palace Medals - 1851

Price: £11.99

by Leslie Lewis Allen and originally published by The Crystal Palace Foundation as a single volume which is now out of print.

We have been given exclusive permission by the late author's family to split the book into two distinct volumes.

This is a detailed alphabetical compilation of the awards made by Her Majesty's Commissioners at the Great Exhibition 1851 and of staff employed at the exhibition.

This book now has two extra parts included. Appendix VIII of History of the Royal Sappers and Miners 1857 listing gifts received by the men as well as the bronze medal and a copy of 'An Act to prevent false Representations as to the Grants of Medals or Certificates made by the Commissioners for the Exhibitions of 1851 and 1862.'

This meticulously produced volume is a companion to 'The World's Show - Coincraft's Catalogue of Crystal Palace Medals and Tokens, 1851 - 1936' also by Leslie.

For anyone researching medal winners or a family connection with the 1851 Exhibition this book is a must.

Available on CD, memory stick  or printed (WILL BE SENT UNBOUND) (Please advise which is required on your order)
