About this title

Synopsis:

The handbook explains how money and exchange functioned as elements of the American economy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; it also provides sufficient technical and statistical information to allow the reader to convert a sum recorded in one currency into its equivalent in another. McCusker combines this with a compilation of exhaustive tables that give the commercial rate of exchange between London and the major cities of Europe and the British colonies.

Book Description:

"[A] remarkably clear, yet brief, guide through the murky complexities of the money of some sixty to seventy colonies. . . . A superb piece of work."-- Journal of American History
