Jordan, Louis. John Hull, The Mint and the Economics of Massachusetts Coinage. Colonial Coin Collector's Club: 2002. The stories of Colonial silversmith John Hull and the early days of the Massachusetts mint are irresistibly intertwined, as this well-documented study makes clear. In addition to being, with his partner John Sanderson, the first silversmith working in 17th century Massachusetts, Hull was the Colony's first Mint Master, and although both major sources to his life and work, Clarke's 1940 biography and Patricia Kane's recent study of Massachusetts silversmiths, note his mint work, neither delves into it in more than passing. Louis Jordan, making use of ledgers and other records, changes all that with this in-depth and consuming study of a silversmith, a mint, and a new coinage for a new country... Hardcover. 8.5"x11", xx + 348 pages, b/w illustrations, dj bibliography. New.
