Money, Prices and Wages. Essays in Honour of Professor Nicholas Mayhew
Allen, M. & Coffman, D’M. Money, Prices and Wages. Essays in Honour of Professor Nicholas Mayhew. 2014. 304 pages, illustrations in the text. Casebound, jacket. Professor Nicholas Mayhew is Professor of Numismatics and Monetary History at Oxford, a former Deputy Director of the Ashmolean Museum, Director of the Winton Institute for Monetary History and Fellow of St Cross College. Over the course of his forty-year career, Mayhew has made key contributions to fields as diverse as medieval European monetary history, numismatics, financial history, price and wage history, and macroeconomic history. His recent analysis of the Price Revolution is the most influential account of one of the defining features of early modern English economic life. He has been instrumental in debunking notions of a pre-monetary, feudal past, and in the application of the Fisher Equation to historical data. Mayhew has inspired two generations of medieval historians and many colleagues in related disciplines. These essays, in his honour, demonstrate the analytical power and chronological reach of the novel interdisciplinary approach he has nurtured in himself and others.
