Great Britains remembrancer, looking in and out. Tending to the increase of the monies of the Commonwealth. Presented to his Highness the Lord Protector, and to the High Court of Parliament now assembled.
for Tho[mas] Newcomb, and are to be sold by Humphrey Moseley,, London 1655 - An expanded version of Maddison's Englands looking in and out (1640). Maddison, a forward looking and enterprising landlord was a vocal advocate for the regulation of the money markets, arguing that foreign exchangers and unscrupulous merchants had devalued the currency for personal gain. He developed his ideas in the work above mentioned to include the demand that an accurate account be kept and made available of the balance of trade. "In 1655 he published an updated version of his 1640 tract entitled Great Britain's remembrancer, looking in and out; tending to the increase of the monies of the Commonwealth. Presented to his highness the lord protector and to the high court of parliament now assembled (1655). His recent experience of office can account for new calls for a bank, a council for the mint, and free ports, but his general economic views remained unchanged" (ODNB). 4to (181 × 135 mm), pp. [iv], 42. Title and latter leaves slightly soiled, title with small rubbed hole (not affecting text) to inner margin, minor loss to upper forecorner. Disbound. A good copy. [Wing M245.]
