Readers may be interested to know that a fine collection of medals is being auctioned by Morton & Eden in May.

They were collected by Dr Jeremy Taylor, the author of The Architectural Medal - England in the Nineteenth Century, which was published in 1978 and based on the medals in the British Museum. His collection consists of 72 19th-century medals, which portray both contemporary and older buildings, often recording their foundations or subsequent restoration work.

Architects such as Inigo Jones, Wren, Vanbrugh, Chambers, Soane and Barry are depicted.

More details can be obtained from Morton & Eden, 45 Maddox Street, London W1S 2PE.

The illustration shows the interior of the Coal Exchange in the City of London, designed by JB Bunning, opened in 1849. It was demolished in the 1960s, in what has been described as 'the great conservationist horror story'.
