First edition, very rare, of the Dutch translation of Edward Jones's 1796 English System of book-keeping. "Jones's Dutch translator and adapter, N. A. Vestieu, took as his illustrative material the transactions recorded in N. F. Förtsch's Instructie... over het Italiaans Boekhouden, Amsterdam, 1801. He reworked these transactions according to a modified English system, and was able to produce the same total profit figure as Förtsch had found, using the traditional double-entry system." (Bywater and Yamey, p. 222).
