Book Description

This book, first published in 1771 and reissued in 1984, is a fascinating insight into the history of accounting. Written by a London accountant (‘accomptant’) in 1771, it examines the profession as it was in the eighteenth century. It looks at the system of book-keeping, the banking business, and double entry book-keeping for manufacturers.
