Solid hardcover.; "An understanding of the Silver Question cannot be had from conditions that obtain in the United States alone. ... It has occurred to the writer that the principal facts in relation to these events, properly arranged and concisely stated, might throw a stronger light on the questions in dispute, reveal the logic of events, too often hidden in the maze of theories and political debates, and enable a people, whose opinions give character to legislation, and on whose judgment alargely depend the financial strength of their government and the eventual determination of a monetary system, adequate and just for the whole world, to better understand a problem which seems determined to trouble their federal policies. ... The purpose is simply to tell the story of the conferences, and of the intervening monetary events of importance, as affecting conferences or as affected by them, in part, the story of the evolution of the Silver Question in this country and in Europe." - Preface. ; Ex-Library; x, 477, 1 ad pages.
