John Chamberlain papers, 1954-1959 0.6 Linear Feet — 350 Items

Book reviewer, editor, and author of The Roots of Capitalism, published in 1959. Collection contains Chamberlain's working draft for The Roots of Capitalism, with both handwritten and typescript pages. Also includes a notebook with his thoughts and notes on economic history, a letter of correspondence from a publisher about The Roots of Capitalism, and galley proofs from Citadel, Market, and Altar (1957) and MacArthur 1941-1951 (1954).

The collection consists of working drafts and final drafts of Chamberlain's The Roots of Capitalism (1959), with both typescript and manuscript pages holding heavy corrections and additions. There are approximately 350 pages, some with yellowing, but generally the materials are in good condition.

Also included are a commonplace notebook with about 45 pages filled with notes on Ricardo, Mill, and Carl Menger, along with general economic history notes. Another component of the collection are the galley proofs for two of Chamberlain's other works: the first is Spencer Health's Citadel, Market, and Altar, published 1957, to which Chamberlain contributed the foreward; the second is MacArthur, 1941-1951, published 1954, which Chamberlain co-authored with Charles Andrew Willoughby.
