An historical inquiry into the production and consumption of the precious metals
London: John Murray, 1831. First edition, 2 vols., 8vo, pp. xvi, 380; xi, [1], 415, [1]; later full speckled calf by Riviere, red and green morocco labels on gilt-decorated spines, marbled edges and endpapers; 19th century bookplate; slightest rubbing, else near fine. William Jacob (1762?-1851) was appointed to the comptrollership of corn returns in 1822. "On the suggestion of Huskisson, Jacob undertook an inquiry into the production and consumption of the precious metals. This work shows great research, but is defective, which may be attributed partly, for the more recent periods, to the insufficient historical information available then" (Palgrave II, 471). Goldsmiths' 26788; Kress C.2842.
