In 1917, renowned economist Joseph S. Davis published Essays in the Earlier History of American Corporations, which included Corporations in the American Colonies, a lengthy treatise on the history of corporations dating all the way back to colonial times. As Davis notes at the beginning of his work, “The modern corporation is of ancient lineage. A thoroughly adequate account of its ancestry and early development has yet to be written. This, however, is not peculiarly a task for an American student. For by the time this continent was discovered the corporation had attained a definite status in the social constitution of England.
This edition of Corporations in the American Colonies is specially formatted with a Table of Contents.
