Regarding Fractional Money, David Sundman writes:
I greatly enjoyed David Ginsburg’s review of Carothers’ excellent book, and slipped a copy of it into my own hardcover copy. I thought readers might enjoy the attached 12/19/1963 typed note inside my copy, and the Princeton University Library presentation bookplate with “Presented by Neil Carothers” imprint.
As to the author of the note, I can’t recall where I bought the book now—and offhand I don’t know who JPR or TLC are or were. I am guessing the “JPR” who managed to coax the book out of Princeton’s Library was or is of a Continental or English background, as the date is expressed “19 December, 1963” --- or he or she could just be an Anglophile
Thanks! Neat story, and a great association copy of a great book.
