Illustrated Catalogue of the Tokens, Medallions and Banknotes of Cumbria by Farthing, C. R. S. 

Galata 2013, Paperback, 328 pages, approx 1600 full colour illustrations

This lavishly illustrated catalogue is the result of 30 years of research and assimilating data from sources that include museums and private collections across the country, and covers all numismatic material relating to Cumbria found in the entire period the English Civil War to the present day.
There is a detailed account of the background reasons for the existence of such items, and an assessment of where and why Cumbria varies from the rest of the country. There are also many short biographical commentaries on the individual issuers.

Arranged by theme, this catalogue is fully cross-references to a multiplicity of records and other source information, and embodies a comprehensive search index to assist in the identification of obscure items, often with no obvious local identity. There is also an indicator of rarity and market value.
