Notes

First edition. The copy of the economist James Bonar (1852-1941), with his extensive pencilled annotations, mostly in an indecipherable shorthand. With Bonar's bookplate to the front pastedown, and the loosely inserted bookplate from his bequest of the book to the Adam Smith Class Library. The book was an advance review copy with the perforated stamp to the title page, presumably sent to Bonar for review, although if Bonar ever wrote and published such a review it cannot be traced. A Scottish civil servant, James Bonar's (1852-1941) prolific economic writings include biographical assessments of Malthus and Ricardo, and he published the catalogue of Adam Smith's Library. The Value of Money was Benjamin Anderson's (1886-1949) critique of the quantity theory of money, from his Austrian School perspective.
