BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: Colonies (General)
37 volumes large folio. This set - Colonies, General - comprises the papers which cannot be assigned to any specific colony, either because of subject matter or because of relationship to an overall corpus of material. The set includes a number of Select Committee Reports on general colonial policy. 34 volumes out of 37 comprise the colonial annual reports which were submitted to the House of Commons yearly from 1846 onwards. * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in half green morocco leather . They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20042)   £1100.00

The examination was held on Jan 11 and Feb 16, 1899 and occupies thirty-four columns." Indian currency had been a vexed question ever since bimetallism was abandoned in 1873; it was a subject that was to be dominated by Keynes's analysis in his own first book, Indian Currency and Finance, 1913. Marshall was full of praise for Keynes's work on the subject: [it is] a prodigy of constructive work... we old men will have to hang ourselves if young people [like Keynes] can cut their way so straight and with such apparent ease through such difficulties." see Harrod, Life of John Maynard Keynes, pp.164-71.
