The introduction by Ilersic provides an overview of the career of Steven Dowell, the original author and editorof the work. Dowell’s extensive description of taxation in England, which begins with the lack of taxation in Britain prior to the coming of the Romans and ends with a description of taxation in the seventeeth century, may be dated at this point as the work was written at the end of the 19th century.
