The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 14


In lieu of much matter having reference to Land Tenures and the Taxation of Land we this year reprint and embody in the Almanack a valuable and authoritative pamphlet on the Land Tax, published originally by the Anti-Corn-Law League in 1842, and of which, though a re-issue took place in later years at the expense of Mr. James Beal, it has long been impossible to obtain copies. Readers of the Almanack will find this pamphlet specially useful in the controversies now pending with regard to Land and to Local Taxation, not to mention its high importance in discussion of the national Revenue grievances, and these considerations have induced us to allot a large part of our present issue to the aforesaid Anti-Corn-Law League pamphlet, which will be found on pages 183 to 200. For its arguments, facts, and conclusions, we bespeak the earnest consideration of men of all parties, convinced that a wide circulation under cover of our Almanack is the best course available for securing public attention and perusal.
