Wells’s 1888 Practical Economics

By the promulgator of the excise tax stamp for liquor, David A. Wells’s 1888 Practical Economics is likely to serve any student of excise taxation — especially the chapters on Taxing Distilled Spirits, starting on page 152.

This book is in the public domain.  Pass it on.
