About the Book

This set draws together rare material from 1870-1930 and ranges from monetary economics to straight banking theory. English banking theory changed little after a learning process in the first half of the nineteenth century. Some of the banks grew to be the biggest in the world and a banking system evolved that was probably the most stable in the world.

This collection demonstrates the establishment of English banking, activities covered and problems encountered by banks, and how they played a major role in the economy during the last century.
