Eighteenth Century Economics: Turgot, Beccaria and Smith and Their Contemporaries

By Peter Groenewegen | Go to book overview

Notes
1
A review of H. Mizuta, Adam Smith’s Library: A Supplement to Bonar’s Catalogue with a Check-list of the Whole Library, published for the Royal Economic Society (Cambridge University Press, London, 1967) pp. xix+153. £1 17s 6d. Throughout these notes, all references to Mizuta are to this work unless otherwise indicated.

These controversies dealt with the alleged shift in Smith’s philosophical position which occurred between the publication of Moral Sentiments and the Wealth of Nations, his relationship with physiocratic ideas, and especially with those of Turgot, and his attitude to what were then current topics, such as the role of the East India Company, etc.

See the introduction to James Bonar, A Catalogue of the Library of Adam Smith (Macmillan, London, 1932) pp. xvi-xvii. I have by me a letter from Mr J. V. Howard, New College librarian, who warns me that ‘The New College collection, which appears to comprise about half the total, has never been fully catalogued, and there are, I am sure, omissions and inaccuracies as a result [in Mizuta’s catalogue]’.

See above and the reference in note 7. Mizuta also suggests a leakage from the library when in Lord Reston’s possession. See ibid., p. ix.
14
Ibid., p. xi.
15
A quick check revealed the following information about the location of the new items: New College, 97 items; Johns Hopkins, 25; Queens University, 7; Goldsmiths’ Library, 9; Tokyo, 15; Old College, 8; Kress, 6; Glasgow University, 8; the remainder are single items in private collections with one exception, that of L. Livingstone, which is now in Glasgow University. See ibid., p. ix.
16
Since many of these books are items from the seventeenth century, they could have been acquired by Smith after 1781. But there are also many pamphlets of the 1750s and 1760s among them, which Smith probably would have acquired when they were published.
