Extremely limited, very special market for this detailed history of the world's greatest financial institution, The Bank of England. Vol. I covers 14-1797; Vol. II, 1797-1914. Exhaustive coverage of functions, personnel, policy, the minute scrutiny of every incident, change, chronological development, carried through to the beginning of the last war, makes this a basic source for future work on the Bank's contemporary history, particularly in view of the tic changes of modern times. For large libraries --for banking reference shelves -- not for the layman.
