First edition, marked ‘for private circulation’, of a paper read before the Statistical Society on 21 February 1848.

The barrister J. T. Danson (1817–1898), a man of great versatility and varied experience, wrote on many economic questions, among them on English colonial policy, strongly setting forth the need of controlling colonists in their dealings with natives and with unappropriated land. He also assisted Thomas Tooke in the fourth volume of the History of Prices, the help he gave being warmly acknowledged in the Preface to that volume.
