Example text

Writing an introduction to a translation of Anton Menger’s book on socialism ought to have been a congenial task, and probably was when he first agreed to take it on in 1893. Three years passed before he started to write, though when he did so he promised to finish it by the end of the coming summer vacation. It was not ready for the press until 1898, and by then the introduction had stretched to over a hundred pages, and what had been promised as a short bibliography of the English socialist school had grown to 600 items occupying a further seventy-six pages (Foxwell 1899).

Rae (1894: 217–18). On Foxwell’s teaching see the syllabus of his Cambridge University Extension lecture on ‘Political Economy and Democracy’ given in Heckmondwike in 1884 (Foxwell 1884b; also Collet 1936: 616–17). 7 In the letter from Rae to Foxwell (7 Jan. 1885, Freeman Collection), Rae offers opinions on Roscher and advice on one of Brentano’s publications in German on national insurance.
