Excerpt from Ecomics of Forestry: A Reference Book, for Students of Political Ecomy and Professional and Lay Students of Forestry Some years ago I made a contract with Messrs. T. Y. Crowell & Co. for the editorship of certain volumes in their Library of Ecomics and Politics, and among them the present work by Dr. Ferw was included. Although I have resigned my position as general editor of this Library, I am glad to accede to the request of the publishers to continue the original arrangement for this volume.
