PREFATORY NOTE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.
Five new selections have been added to the present edition of the Economic History, thereby bringing it down to the end of the nineteenth century.
More recent material also has been substituted for the fifth Appendix. The Select Bibliography of Economics, which appeared in the third edition, has been omitted, as it has been reprinted in a separate volume. The names of the authors and publishers, through whose kindness the reprints have been allowed to be made, are placed, as in former editions, at the opening of the several chapters.
