Early Dated Coins of Europe by Levinson

I came across this book in another thread and it looks interesting, but there are only a few preview pages available on Amazon.

Can anyone offer a review or recommendation? Thanks in advance.

    This book concerns European coins dated before 1501 A.D.
    Well organized by regions. Bob spent several years researching
    his book. The current edition is 10+ years old. If Medieval coinage
    is an area of the hobby that you enjoy, I highly recommend its
    purchase. WARNING Many of the listed coins are extremely
    rare, less than 6 known. The great majority of those coins are in
    museums. The rest come along infrequently. The listing may say
    25+ known but even these coins only come along infrequently.
    I have been collecting them for over 15 years. At the Denver
    ANA I spent 2 hours discussing these coins with Bob. He freely
    shares his knowledge on the topic. If you have any questions
    on this topic please do not hesitate to PM me.

    Great book. Buy from Charlie Davis for less than the Amazon price though (unless you're getting Kindle version).

    Ok - thanks for all the replies and input. Another question - how about any of the books by Peter Spufford? He wrote "Money and its Use in Medieval Europe" and "Power and Profit: The Merchant in Medieval Europe."

    Mostly looking for a good general read about the money in the middle ages more than a reference book.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not familiar with either book, so I can't comment.
