THE History of the BANK OF ENGLAND by Sir John Clapham

THE History of the BANK OF ENGLAND

Email this review


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.
