PREFATORY NOTE.

THESE selections have been made for use as a text-book of required reading to accompany a course of lectures on economic history given at Harvard College. The work was undertaken at the request of Professor Charles F. Dunbar, to whose kind counsel the compiler has been throughout greatly indebted.

This book has already been adopted for a similar purpose as at Harvard by other leading American Universities. Although the compilation was prepared with special reference to the needs of students in courses of economic study, yet the nature and scope of the selections render them of value to any person who may desire to obtain a knowledge of some of the most important events and influences in modern economic history.
