Books on Banking and Money

-Banking Principles And Practice | by E. L. Stewart Patterson
It would be impossible within the narrow confines of one volume to deal exhaustively with so extensive a subject as that of Canadian banking practice, but it is hoped that the parts of this subject dealt with herein will be found to be treated with due regard to their relative importance, and that no really essential information has been overlooked. As far as possible, all matters coming within the scope of the Bills of Exchange Act have been purposely omitted, because an intimate knowledge of the act itself is essential to every business man and banker.
-Banking Principles And Practice | by Ray B. Westerfield
The aim of this book is to give a comprehensive exposition of the theory and practice of commercial banking in the United States
-Canadian Banking Practice | by John T. P. Knight
"Canadian Banking Practice," as a work of reference, undoubtedly affords information upon almost every conceivable point likely to arise in the course of dealings between banks and their customers, and in addition to the knowledge of usage and custom likely to be acquired by the student of its pages, he will be given an appreciation of the general principles of the law governing banking and commercial transactions.
-Elementary Banking | O. Howard Wolfe
This book is not the result of any preconceived theories on methods of education in banking. Neither does it make any pretense of being complete as to the subjects covered nor exhaustive in its treatment of them. It is based on fifteen years of practical experience, beginning with a small country bank and extending through eleven years with a large city bank. To this first-hand knowledge of the educational needs of the beginner in banking has been added four years spent in the teaching of banking subjects to young men in the various chapters of the American Institute of Banking. The subject matter presented herewith consists in the main of a series of lectures delivered to a class of younger men in New York Chapter. This book is intended for the young man just entering the bank from school and too new in the business to be able to undertake the regular Institute study course. No other text book so far as the writer knows is designed to meet this particular need. The method of treatment is to explain the underlying principles not only of bank accounting, but of the everyday transactions that are common to all forms of banking. The danger of the small bank is that it tends to narrow the horizon of the young banker, while in the large bank the beginner too often regards his institution as something inhuman that moves along as entirely independent of him or his associates as if it were a part of the solar system. Another difficulty confronting the beginner is that when he does feel the need of instruction he is apt to fall a victim to the advice of well - meaning but untrained "instructors," who attempt to teach him banking by explaining the use of accounting forms.
-Banks And Bankers | by Daniel Hardcastle, Jun
The object of the following pages is to explain, in a plain and familiar manner, what money, Banking, and currency, properly speaking, are; and how it behoves us to deal with them at present in this country. I conceive that this object may be realized in a manner the most satisfactory, and that the information conveyed will be rendered valuable to the greatest number of persons, by giving an intelligible account, clear of all technical expressions, of the doctrines of the leading authorities upon the subject, the different systems propounded, and the results of the efforts that have been made to carry them into execution.
-Banks And Banking | by H. T. Easton
This small volume consists of a series of notes on the growth and development of banking in this country. The author has endeavoured to show how the deposit of money in a bank has developed into a complex system of finance, and also how capital, wielding an immense power in the present day, is largely under the management and control of our great banking institutions. The study of banking is of great importance when we consider how dependent the commercial world is upon the existence of a perfectly sound system. To understand the why and wherefore of credit, which forms the basis of banking, is an essential study for those who have adopted it as their profession.
-Money, Banking, And Finance | by Albert S. Bolles
Excellent books on the best methods of bank bookkeeping already exist, also other books on the theories and history of money and banking. In a well-organized course on banking this book should fill an intermediate place between those described; it is the pioneer of its kind. It is designed especially for three classes of students, or readers: those who intend to devote themselves to the business of banking; those who are thus engaged; and those who are studying the history and theories of banking.
-Banking And Currency | by Ernest Sykes
finance, currency, banking, functions, attributes, value of money, gresham's law, english coinage, gold standard, bimetallism, credit, note issues, bank of england, bank charter act, clearing houses, bankers, borrowers, money market, bank return, foreign exchange, stock exchange, financial crises, bibliography, money
-The Law Of Banks And Banking | by John Maxcy Zane
Including acceptance, demand and notice of dishonor upon commercial paper with an appendix containing the federal statutes applicable to national banks
-Banking Practice And Foreign Exchange | by Howard McNayr Jefferson
The authors of this volume have aimed to describe and explain the best practices that American banking experience has yet produced. The chapters on "Banking Practice," written by an educated and experienced banker, represent the fruits of personal experience as well as of study and observation. This part of the volume, it is hoped, will be found to contain suggestions for which men who have been long in the banking business will be grateful, and should also prove a most valuable aid to any young man desiring to fit himself either for a banking career or for general business.
-Organized Banking | by Eugene E. Agger
This book grew out of a part of a course on the subject of money and banking given by the author at Columbia University. It was written under stress of numerous other duties, hence the author himself feels called upon to confess that in several directions the book leaves something to be desired. But it is hoped that it will be helpful to the student and to the general reader in obtaining a little more comprehensive and more closely coordinated knowledge of the broader relations of modern banking. For use in the classroom it is recommended that a good book of readings like W. Hamilton's Readings in Money and Banking, or H. G. Moulton's Principles of Money and Banking be used to supply illustrative, concrete material as a basis for further discussion.
-The ABC Of Banks And Banking | by George M. Coffin
The object of this little volume is to give to the public a simple and concise explanation of the principles and practice of banking in the United States. It is designed to appeal to the reader outside as well as inside of a bank. It is by no means the last word or every word about banking. It may be said that it is a primer covering a field that has hitherto been somewhat neglected. In view of the growth of commercial and economic education the author hopes that the book will be serviceable to teachers and students as well as business men
-Elementary Banking | by John Franklin Ebersole
With the idea of providing a practical and logical course of study for these newcomers in the banking profession, as well as a foundation for the Institute Standard courses of study, a text-book covering the elements of banking and law seemed to be desirable. J. F. Ebersole of the University of Minnesota, who had been teaching an elementary banking course in Minneapolis Chapter, was selected to prepare such a book, based on the lectures given in Minneapolis Chapter. That book has been a distinct success. The present text entitled "Elementary Banking" is based on the book just referred to. However, the original text literature has been completely revised and brought to date, in some cases being rewritten and rearranged, and, in addition, four chapters on bank bookkeeping and accounting have been added.
-Money And Banking | by William A. Scott
The present book is the outcome of ten years' experience in teaching large classes in the University of Wisconsin, and is presented to the public in the hope that students in other institutions as well as the average citizen who wishes to understand this subject may find it useful. Its subject is modern currency, and it aims to analyze and explain the complex media of exchange of the great nations of the present day in such a way as to reveal the nature and workings of each element and the relations between them all.
-Money And Banking | by John Thom Holdsworth
There are many excellent manuals treating of the history and principles of money, of credit, and of the history, principles and practices of banking, but the author has not found any single book which presents in a concise way the whole general subject of money and banking, so arranged as to make it suitable for use as a textbook. The curricula of many schools and colleges limit the time given to the study of this subject to one year, and there has long been a demand for a textbook presenting the essentials of money and banking in such a way that it could be covered in that time. It is hoped that this book may in some measure meet this need.
-Manual Of Canadian Banking | by H. M. P. Eckardt
One of the strong points of the branch system of banking is that it brings all the offices operating under it, even the most remote and the smallest of them, into subjection to carefully devised codes of rules, ensuring reasonable uniformity of practice. The system also ensures expert and skilful guidance for the banking offices of every district, and the employment everywhere of the most modern and effective safeguards against fraud or dishonesty. This Manual essays to outline the methods and practices obtaining in Canada.
-Other People's Money And How The Bankers Use It | by Louis D. Brandeis
While Louis D. Brandeis's series of articles on the money trust was running in Harper's Weekly many inquiries came about publication in more accessible permanent form. Even without such urgence through the mail, however, it would have been clear that these articles inevitably constituted a book, since they embodied an analysis and a narrative by that mind which, on the great industrial movements of our era, is the most expert in the United States. The inquiries meant that the attentive public recognized that here was a contribution to history. Here was the clearest and most profound treatment ever published on that part of our business development which, as President Wilson and other wise men have said, has come to constitute the greatest of our problems. The story of our time is the story of industry...
-Banking, Credits And Finance | by Thomas Herbert Russell
banking, credits, finance, coins, money, stocks, exchange, clearing-house, notes, drafts, monetary system, federal reserve, foreign exchange, investments, stock exchange
-Currency And Banking | by Bonamy Price
This work is founded on the view of Currency and Banking taken in the Lectures on the Principles of Currency, delivered at Oxford, and published in 1869, and also in other writings. I have met with no reason which, in my opinion, requires that the views therein expressed should be altered.
-Chinese Currency And Banking | by Srinivas R. Wagel
This volume is but a sequel to my "Finance in China." In that book I tried to give a bird's-eye view of the whole situation of trade and economics in the country. Owing to the number of subjects that had to be dealt with, the treatment was necessarily brief. The situation in China at the moment is full of interesting possibilities. Reform is in the air, and the necessity for it is being felt more keenly than at any past time. No one interested in this country, in any manner, can escape at least the thought of some scheme, or schemes, tending towards the reformation of China's government and finances.
-Banking And Business | by H. Parker Willis, George W. Edwards
In this volume the authors have undertaken to present an outline of modern American banking in its relation to other business. Their intention has been to prepare a university and college text that would be of service in teaching those elements of banking which are most needed in the schools of business and commerce now in process of development at many of our universities. The arrangement of topics and the general direction of the discussion corresponds, broadly speaking, to the organization of the work in the introductory course in banking in the School of Business of Columbia University.
-Bookkeeping: Banking | by George W. Miner
As banking is a highly specialized subject, it is treated in a separate book.
-The Theory And History Of Banking | by Charles F. Dunbar
The preparation of the following chapters is the result of the need of some convenient statement of ordinary banking operations, felt by the writer when lecturing upon banking to a large class of students in the elements of political economy. To the chapters devoted to such operations it was found useful to add a series of historical chapters on certain of the great banks and banking systems, partly for the easy illustration of theory and partly to supply the want of any good manual of banking history.

-The Romance And Tragedy Of Banking | by Thomas P. Kane
Problems And Incidents Of Governmental Supervision Of National Banks
-The English Manual Of Banking | by Arthur Crump
The following pages are the result of a revision and enlargement of a small book on banking and kindred subjects which was published in 1866 under the title of ' Banking Currency and the Exchanges' Exceedingly imperfect as that little work was in many respects, the public absorbed nearly one thousand copies, and that satisfactory result, all things considered, has been we think due almost entirely to the fact that it was a book about banks and banking, written after going over the ground and ascertaining by years of experience among bankers what the uninitiated wanted to know on the subject.
-The National Banks | by H. W. Richardson
This review is, primarily, a collection from official sources of the main facts concerning the origin and practical working of the National Banking System.
-The Elements Of Banking | by Henry Dunning Macleod
The purpose of the following work is to exhibit in the simplest language possible the mechanism of the great system of Credit, Banking, and the Foreign Exchanges, and to explain the reasoning upon which is founded the Principle of Currency, which I published in 1856 - That the true method of controlling credit and the paper Currency is by adjusting the Kate of Discount by the Bullion in the Bank and the State of the Foreign Exchanges - which is now universally acknowledged to be the true one, and which is now adopted by the Bank of England and by every bank in the world.
-The History, Principles And Practice Of Banking | by J. W. Gilbart
Gilbart on Banking has become a classic. Gilbart himself was a giant among the pioneers of early joint-stock banking. He started his banking career some thirteen years before joint-stock banks were even possible in England, with the exception of the Bank of England. He took an active share in the task of raising these banks from the position of outcasts, barely tolerated and jealously restricted, to one, at all events, somewhere on the same plane as the older type of bank.
-A Financial History Of Texas | by Edmund Thornton Miller
The increasing number of histories of Texas and of books about Texas testify to the| appeal which the history of the state lias alike to its sons and daughters and to those who are foreign to its soil. Texas has been under the flags of France, Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America and the United States, and the scroll which records these changing fortunes has attracted the novelist, the political historian, the student of imperialism and of colonizing movements, and finally the economic and financial historian. Just as its political history is the most fascinating of any of the American states, so its financial history is varied, frequently spectacular, usually interesting, and always illustrative of either the principles or the fallacies of public finance.
