[1 of 7] A sequence of 7 files labelled 'Malthus Population References' followed by the letters of the alphabet indicating the author and/or source cited by Malthus in his Essay on Population. Each file contains extensive notes and annotated photocopies identifying Malthus's sources. The notes, of course, contain far more information than could be published in James's "Alphabetical List of Authorities" in the second volume of her variorum, together with other material that supplements other files. For example, there are photocopies of the census abstracts cited by Malthus (under Rickman); and under Gillies's translation of Aristotle there is a photocopy of Malthus's Latin declamation (1787) taken from the Jesus College original (with four other English essays by others from the same source). Under Layton there are James's detailed criticisms of Professor Layton's Everyman edition of Malthus's Essay on Population; and under Young there are copies of 4 letters from Malthus to Arthur Young taken from Add. MSS held in the British Museum, the last of which deals with the bullion question, the Corn Laws, and the post-war depression.
