First edition of this rare paper, offprinted from Zeitschrift für Volkswirtschaft, Socialpolitik und Verwaltung, volume III, issue I, on the changes of the Indian currency against the silver and gold prices. From 1873 the value of the Rupee sank considerably, leading to the British government of India’s decision in 1893 to close the mints. Zuckerkandl (1856-1926), professor of political economy at the universities of Vienna and Prague, was among the first historians of price theory. In this work he illustrates the contemporary monetary turbulence with statistical material and tables of the development of the Indian economy.

Menger col. 406; Masui p. 911; not found in NUC, or OCLC.
