GUIDE TO BUSINESS HISTORY

By Larson, Henrietta M.

Boston: J.S. Canner & Co., Inc, 1964. HC. very good, maroon cloth (hardcover) no dustjacket as published. Materials for the Study of American Business History and Suggestions for Their Use". Originally published in 1948, a critical bibliography of 4,904 business related publications covering all aspects of business history. Arranged in seven parts: General Introduction, Historical background and setting of American business, business administrators, history of individual business units, history of industries, general topics in business history, and research and reference materials. Over 140 pages of index to locate authors and subject matter. I cannot over emphasize the value of a good reference library. This publication is one of the cornerstones for the business historian, and is an education unto itself on the various businessmen and their industries. Many citations in my lists are from Larson. I was pleased to locate some additional copies to offer, and urge you to consider this book as a guide to your collection development, on materials up to 1948. 1181pp.
