Krause has become the de facto standard for medieval and modern coins worldwide. There are a number of volumes and then there is a volume that deals exclusively with the coins of South Asia. This is the volume that deals with the coins of South Asia. This volume was republished in India.
The publisher, Marudhar, invited a large number of Indian scholar to contribute to this volume -- all of whom were experts in one or more areas of South Indian coinage. Thus a large number of previously unlisted coins were added, and suggested prices of coins were all brought up to date. The revision and addition is visible most in the section that deals with Indian coins because it is scores of Indian scholars who contributed most to this volume.
If anyone collects South Asian Coins, particularly Indian coins, then this catalog is a must-have for him. I highly recommend this volume. I also wish to remind my readers that the only other (imperfect) alternative is to buy scores of...
I have a copy of the original edition which I bought when it first came out. This one has many additions and updates. For collectors and dealers this is a necessary tool.
First of all, this is an excellent source of information on South Asian coinage during the Mughal and Colonial periods. If it ended there, all would be fine. However, while it does list Indian coins post 1947 Partition, there is no inclusion of Pakistan and Bangladesh. While this is a minor omission due to the relatively short period of time, It leaves one suspecting that the motive behind it was political in nature and a result of animosity between Pakistan and India, which should have no place in a scholarly work like this. Whatever the case, I would recommend that future editions include these countries so that the book is truly South Asian.
