I know it can be very expensive, here is a link to a seller that has 2 of the vols for a good price & not too expensive shipping, if you are only interested in the Victorian period, 1837-1901 Vol 2 is fine, Georgian, 1760-1837 you need Vol 1, those are the two that this seller has available http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BRITISH-HISTORICAL-MEDALS-VOLUME-II-LAURENCE-BROWN-T-/230573617603?pt=UK_Coins_Medals_RL&hash=item35af4231c3
