The author of a book is expected to indulge in that system of literary apologetics known as preface writing. The necessity for this may sometimes exist, though quite often enough the utility is not apparent. Sometimes the apology is for the authors intrepidity in presenting his work to the public, or for his lack of ability to do the subject justice, sometimes it is for the imperfections of the work itself. But books are judged by what they are and not by what they ought to be. No lame excuse can atone for a bad performance and no plea be necessary for a good one. I will not apologize for that perfection I do not and cannot possess, and will only add a few words by way of explanation. For some years I have been of the opinion that the condition of the commercial world would be much improved if business men had a more comprehensive knowledge of the fundamental principles of banking and mercantile credits. The banker is the criterion of business men. His methods and mode of doing business exemplify the very best business principles. That a knowledge of these methods and principles of business will be of benefit to every business man is selfevident. Every man, no matter what his calling, should understand the business of banking. Such knowledge will not only enable him to obtain valuable assistance and many favors at the hands of his bankers, but the fundamental principles of business as here taught will enable him to carry his own affairs to a higher degree of perfection and profit. This book is as much for the merchant as for the banker.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically
