Excerpt from Foreign Exchange Tables
There are some countries for which conversion tables might be made but which would be so little used that it would not be desirable to burden the pages of a book with them. In the case of China, there are no tables for taels above 52% cent... s. Tables for Indian rupees or Portuguese milreis would be voluminous and little used. On South and Central American countries, drafts are commonly written in either United States or English money, and tables for rates not here given Would only serve the useless purpose of filling up space.
There are other tables besides conversion tables given in this book which ought alone to be worth its price. These are the various profit tables for checks and drafts sold over the counter, and interest and other tables in the back of the book for figuring the value of bills of exchange. Then, too, the tables convert instantly any rate expressed decimally into one as commonly quoted by bankers. And their relation one to another make them available for figuring arbitrages by a short method.
