History of Domestic and Foreign Commerce of the United States - Vol. 1

By Emory R. Johnson; T. W. Van Metre et al. | Go to book overview

PREFACE.

This History of Domestic and Foreign Commerce of the United States, which constitutes one division of the Contributions to American Economic History, comprises two volumes. The first volume contains three parts, dealing, respectively, with "American Commerce to 1789." "The Internal Commerce of the United States," and "The Coastwise Trade." Volume II also has three parts devoted, respectively, to "The Foreign Trade of the United States Since 1789," "American Fisheries," and "Government Aid and Commercial Policy;" this volume also contains a classified bibliography, which it is hoped will prove useful to readers and special students of American commerce.

Part 1 of volume I, with the exception of chapters IX and X, was written by myself, and I intended, when the task was undertaken in 1904, to write the entire work. This proved impossible; but I have directed the investigation and edited the work of the collaborators. In the preparation of the final volumes I was most fortunate in having the assistance of Dr. T. W. Van Metre, who teaches the history of American commerce at the University of Pennsylvania, and of Dr. G. G. Huebner, assistant professor of transportation and commerce in the same institution. Dr. Van Metre wrote parts 2 and 3 of volume I and part 2 of volume II. Professor Huebner wrote part 1 of volume II, with the exception of chapter XXII, which was done by myself. Part 3 of volume II was written by Dr. David S. Hanchett, formerly assistant in transportation and commerce at the University of Pennsylvania. The author's name is attached to the part or parts written by him.

The final work, as presented in these two volumes, is based in part upon monographic studies made by collaborators. Professor S. S. Huebner and Dr. (now Assistant Professor) G. G. Huebner prepared an elaborate, and as yet unpublished, historical account of The Foreign Trade of the United States. Professor Thomas Conway Jr., has written an unpublished study of The Coastwise Commerce of the United States. Assistant Professor Raymond McFarland, then principal of the Leicester Academy, Leicester, Mass., wrote A History of the New England Fisheries that was published by the University of Pennsylvania. The history of American fisheries other than those of New England was worked up by Dr. Walter Sheldon Tower, now associate professor of geography at the University of Chicago. This study of fisheries has not been published. Dr. Tower also wrote a monograph upon A History of the American Whale Fishery that was published by the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Albert A. Giesecke, now Rector of the Univer
