Money and Exchange in Europe and America, 1600-1775: A Handbook
Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Va., 1978 - Business & Economics - 367 pages
The handbook explains how money and exchange functioned as elements of the American economy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; it also provides sufficient technical and statistical information to allow the reader to convert a sum recorded in one currency into its equivalent in another. McCusker combines this with a compilation of exhaustive tables that give the commercial rate of exchange between London and the major cities of Europe and the British colonies.
