WITH A SKETCH
RISE AND PROGRESS OF THE SCIENCE.
By J. R. M'CULLOCH, Esq.
PRINTED FOR WILLIAM AND CHARLES TAIT:
AND LONGMAN AND CO. LONDON.
Though the Article on POLITICAL EcoNOMY in the Supplement to the Encyclopædia Britannica forms the ground-work of the present publication, it is, in most respects, an entirely New Work. The limits within which it was necessary to compress the article in the Supplement, obliged me to omit several interesting and important subjects, which I have here treated at considerable length: And I have endeavoured to avail myself of the aids derived from subsequent reflection, and the suggestions and criticisms of others, to improve those parts of the work that are not completely new, and to render the whole more worthy of the science, and of the public attention.
