A HISTORY OF THE PRECOUS METALS
From the Earliest Times to the Present;
- By Alex Del Mar.
Second Ed., Complete hi One YoL; pp. 500, 8yo, CLOTH AND GOLD, $3.0
This is not a recension of tho flrst edition (London, 1880), but an entiroly now work,
constructed on an improved plan by tho same author. Tho following are from tho proBS
notices of tho first odition:
Abounds with vivid description and practical knowledge London Athenaeum.
Ropleto with information; evinceB much caro and study. London Academy.
Shows tho most conspicuous advanco boyond his predecessors. London Saturday
A work of groat weight and oleganco of stylo. London Economist.
No such ablo and exhaustive work sinco that of William Jacob. London Statist.
Years ago Mr. Del Mar gnvo to tho public "A History of the Precious Metals"
which has sinco become a standard work on the subject. In that work was traced the
adventures of tho Phoenicians, Romans, Spaniards. Cnliforninna and Australians
those Argonauts who variously from tho dawn of history to tho present time, have led
the search for tho .precious metals. Bosido discovery, tbo author sbowod that theso
metals had been largoly obtained through conquest and slavory. Tho Porsian, Greek,
' Roman, Egyptian, Spanish, and British conquests of mining countries, and the Roman
and Spanish systems of mine slavery, woro next delineated, and finally the conditions
of freo mining were examined. Upon a genoral roviow of tho entire Bubject, tho author
found amnio reason to ngreo with tho celebrated dictum of Montesquieu, that upon the
wholo, gold and silver, when obtained by freo mining and paid labour, had cost to the
world a far greater prico than they represented in tho exchanges. Montesquieu arrived
at this conclusion by instinct; Mr, Dol Mar reached it through historical research.
Mr. D, has thoroughly surmounted every obstacle, and furnished a volumo replete
with information. Every lino will bo read. London Mining Journal.
A complete text-book on tho subject. London Money.
Based on independent research. London Daily News.
Of the highest scientific yaluo, yet readable as a novol. New York Economist.
The peculiar advantages which Mr. Del Mar has enjoyed have alone enabled a work
of such magnitudo and hUtorical vnluo to be conploted in a single lifetime. He has
traveled 'into every country wiioso monetary system no nas delineated ; uo Has examined
the official records, consulted tho local histories and numismatic monuments, surveyed
the gold and silver mines and traced the mining rivers, in each of them soparatoly; and
by the light of thoso researches ho has been enabled to construe many obscure passages
in tho texts of Caosar, Pliny, Plutarch, and other ancient writers. Mr. Del Mar's works
are valuable contributions to tho small amount of literaturo that has been published
oh such impbrtant subjects, and they are the more useful because they are devoted to
the setting forth of facts, and not to tho upholding of any particular theories. London
Next to its versatility and vast scopo, the absolute impartiality of the work is per
haps its most striking feature. It advocates no theories, it indulges in-no deductive
arguments, it is strictly historical, and it is history of the highest order, fit to rank
with the works of Gibbon, Robertson, Alison, Macaulay, Nfebuhr and Mommsen. Bul
