[Economics - Paraire, John]. A Modern Universal Table [...] of the present state of the Real and Imaginary monies of the World: Divided into Four parts, viz. Europe, Asia, Africa, and America.

[Apparently London, ca. 1770].

Broadsheet, 556:476 mm. Traces of folds.


A large currency table intended for wall-mounting, as it was variously issued during the last decades of the 18th century for the use of British merchants, giving the exchange rates of the European and even overseas currencies at the rates prevalent near the end of the Ancien Régime. Decorative, and still a useful tool for any historian of the period.

A little closely trimmed at head, just touching the letter "A" at the head. Provenance: Her Majesty's State Paper Office; latterly in a London private collection.
