ADDITIONAL REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

“…[The two rare book libraries] are comprehensive in their coverage; they contain, in some cases, the only known extant copies of certain works, and they include numerous books of fascinating provenance — books from the personal libraries of such personages as Adam Smith, Lord Sheffield, David Ricardo, John Locke, Jeremy Bentham, William Wilberforce, Robert Owen, Sir Robert Peel, William Wordsworth and Karl Marx.”
Nathan Rosenberg, Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin, Editor, Journal of Economic History
