Pp 281, 3 folding tables at rear. 8vo, blue cloth. "The history and economic effects of Imperial preference as applied to the trade of the British Colonies, and other protectionist measures taken tofoster intra-imperial trade, provide the central theme of Dr. Meyer's book . It also outlines the history and economic importance of the trade relations of the British Colonies with the United States and the principal commercial Powers of the continent of Europe, and the greographic region to which they belong. Finally, an attempt is made to weigh up the relative advantages to the Colonies of a trade policy primarily designed to foster intra-imperial trade, one that favours the expansion of trade with the principal foreign Powers, and one that would develop 'regional trade'." - from the dust jacket.
