The London Stock Exchange: A History

By Ranald C. Michie | Go to book overview

Select Bibliography

PRIMARY SOURCES
This book rests upon a careful reading of the records generated by the London Stock Exchange as an institution. The main series used were:
1. Committee for General Purposes, 1798-1946
2. Committee of the Trustees and Managers, 1801-1948
3. Council of the London Stock Exchange, 1944-88
The minutes of the two Committees and that of the Council up to 1954, are lodged in the Guildhall Library, London. The Council Minutes for the period after 1954 are still retained by the London Stock Exchange. Associated with the Committees were numerous subcommittees whose records are also held by the Guildhall Library, and they were also consulted. However, I did not consult the records of the even more numerous Council subcommittees, held by the Stock Exchange, because of the vast increase in the volume of material included in the Council Minutes until the mid-1970s. All subcommittees reported to either General Purposes or Trustees and Managers Committees, and later to Council, submitting both reports and recommendations as well as supplementary papers, correspondence, and opinions.For the post-war, and especially contemporary, history of the Stock Exchange the following were also invaluable.
4. Annual Reports, 1956-97
5. Financial Times, 1983-98
6. Stock Exchange Quarterly (became Quality of Markets Review), 1984-95.

(Detailed references are to be found in the footnotes.)

In addition, the Stock Exchange Official Intelligence/Stock Exchange Yearbook and Stock Exchange Factbook were invaluable sources of statistical data.


SECONDARY SOURCES

Much of my already published work has been on stock exchange history, including that of the London Stock Exchange, or was concerned with the City of London, or finance and investment. Thus, I have not included in this bibliography references to contemporary and historical works which have been extensively used for my earlier writing. Instead, this selective bibliography lists those books and articles that have been of most use in writing this history.
