Nineteenth Century Books on Economics

Nineteenth Century Books on Economics is an affordable subset of 1,007 carefully selected titles drawn from works on economics found in the General Collection on Society and Culture. The 1,007 texts are all English-language monographs dating from the period 1801-1900 but the focus is primarily on the second half of the century.

Economic welfare of the state lies at the root of most social and political writing in the nineteenth century. John Stuart Mill even used the phrase 'economy of society' to explain the consequences of 'progress' driven by wealth and material prosperity. The Nineteenth Century Books on Economics constitutes what might be regarded as a microcosm of the principal texts published during the century on the sources of material progress and its social consequences.

The collection includes both important texts and a wealth of scarce politico-economic tracts providing scholars access to a corpus of rare and valuable works on all aspects of economic history.

Subjects covered include:

  • Banking
  • Money
  • Population
  • Taxation
  • Trade
  • Industrialization
  • The slave trade
  • Advertising
  • Capital
  • Statistics
  • Labour movements
  • Transport
  • Communication
