Notes

First edition, first impression, of Keynes first book. Keynes served as a civil servant in the India Office from 1906 to 1908, and, while he did not like the work, he used it as the basis for the present book, a defence of the Indian currency system against those who wished to move to a gold-based currency. Keynes took his seat on the Royal Commission on Indian Finance and Currency the same year.
