PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.

When I was helping my husband to prepare a third edition of his Manual of Political Economy, it occurred to us both that a small book, explaining as briefly as possible the most important principles of the science, would be useful to beginners, and would perhaps be an assistance to those who are desirous of introducing the study of Political Economy into schools. It is mainly with the hope that a short and elementary book might help to make Political Economy a more popular study in boys and girls' schools that the following pages have been written. In order to adapt the book especially for school use, questions have been added at the end of each chapter.

CAMBRIDGE, 1870.
