A revised bibliography of publications by W. Stanley Jevons.

Abstract: This bibliography of publications by W. Stanley Jevons makes a number of significant changes to the extensive bibliography published by Inoue and White in 2002. Fourteen new entries are identified, which include reviews, an obituary of Charles Babbage, a series of articles regarding Jevons's Coal Question and the record of a previously unknown appearance by Jevons as a witness before a House of Commons Select Committee. Information has also been added, or corrections made, to seventeen existing entries. It is argued that two entries that were previously attributed to Jevons should be deleted from his bibliography.

1 Introduction

The following bibliography of publications by W. Stanley Jevons is based on the bibliography published as Inoue and White (1993). As was noted in the introduction to that 1993 paper, the objective was to provide a tool that would aid research on the development of Jevons's work. Hence a chronological format was used which provided some indication of the development of Jevons's interests by his publications. The focus was on Jevons's published writing in the English language. For reasons of space, translations into other languages, reviews of, and comments on, Jevons's published work were omitted. (1) Jevons's many letters to newspapers and journals were included, since they were often in the form of short articles. Unless indicated otherwise, dates given were those of publication. The same format was adopted in a revised version of the bibliography, published as Inoue and White (2001), which included new entries with corrections and information added to existing entries. Further information and new entries were added in the bibliography published as Inoue and White (2002). (2)

A number of further discoveries justify the publication of this new version of the bibliography. By comparison with the 2002 version, there are fourteen new entries (65, 69, 73, 87, 96, 120, 125, 128, 136, 146, 157, 199, 226, 229) and information has been added, or corrections made, to seventeen existing entries (50, 68, 71, 75, 77, 85, 93, 97, 99, 150, 155, 161, 162, 173, 176, 197, 202). Two entries have been deleted, as explained in section 2. A reference change should also be noted. Inoue and White (1993) identified eight items for Jevons's period in Australia (10, 16, 18, 19, 24, 28, 27, 28) from a confusing list in one of Jevons's notebooks (reprinted in Black 1973-81, 7, pp. 123-40). The reasons for those attributions have since been published in White (2006), reference to which is now made for each of the relevant items in the bibliography.

2 Deletions

Two deletions have been made from previous versions of the bibliography. The first, which appeared as item 22 in all versions, recorded an 1857 publication as follows: '[?] March 12. Untitled review of Geology and Genesis, by G. Wight, 1857, Empire, p. 2, unsigned (see La Nauze 1949, p. 42)'. As was indicated by the question mark, inclusion of this item was debatable. As there is now some evidence that the attribution to Jevons is inaccurate [White 2006, p. 116], the entry has been deleted.

The second deletion, which requires a more extended explanation, appeared in all previous versions of the bibliography as the last entry for the year 1871. It became item number 126 in the 2002 version and read as follows: 'Report of the [Royal] Commissioners Appointed to Inquire into the Several Matters Relating to Coal in the United Kingdom, London, 3 vols (see LJ, p. 463)'. As indicated, the item was taken from the list of Jevons's writings compiled by Harriet Jevons for the publication of her husband's Letters and Journal. Her reference gave the clear impression that evidence by Jevons was referred to or printed in the Report. The entry was, however, recorded with an asterisk in the bibliography because neither Takutoshi Inoue nor I could find any such reference in the Report. It now appears that Jevons was not asked to appear as a witness before the Commission and it is unclear whether he actually provided any evidence at all.

The Royal Commission was appointed following the alarm that followed the use, by John Smart Mill, MP, and William Gladstone, the chancellor of the exchequer, of Jevons's Coal Question in parliamentary debates concerning the budget of 1866 [White 1991]. The first meeting of the Commission was held on 7 July 1866. Five committees were appointed, two of which were chaired by Sir Roderick Murchison. These were D ('Committee on the Probability of Finding Coal under Superincumbent Strata', also referred to as the Geological Committee) and E ('Committee on Mineral Statistics', also referred to as the Statistics Committee). (3) The Committees circulated printed lists of questions, asking for written responses. (4) On 16 February 1867, Murchison sent Jevons a copy of the questions circulated by (what can be inferred to be) Committee D and wrote that he would ask the Commission Secretary to forward copies of questions prepared by 'other Committees'. The editor of the Jevons Papers and Correspondence suggested that this was a reference to the questions from Committee E [Black 1973-81, 3, p.154]. On 1 March the Secretary sent Jevons a copy of Circular 1, issued by Committee A ('Committee on Possible Depths of Working'). (5) Other circulars might have been sent to him, but there appears to be no extant evidence in that regard. It should be noted that many of the questions from Committees A, D and E were so highly specific (asking, for example, about information that only colliery owners or managers could supply about their own enterprise), that it might be wondered to how many Jevons could possibly have responded.

Murchison's letter to Jevons began by noting that he was responding 'to your letter of yesterday' [Black 1973-8l, 3, p. 154]. While Jevons's letter apparently no longer exists, Murchison's note suggests that Jevons had to contact the Commission about copies of the distributed questions and, perhaps, the possibility of providing evidence. In the absence of further information, it seems odd that he was not asked to appear. That would, however, be consistent with the attitude adopted in the Commission's Report of 1871 which was highly critical of Jevons's calculations on the duration of coal stocks, relying instead on those of his critic, Richard Price Williams. (6) In a defence of Jevons, the Economist then argued that 'the important fact [about the Report] is that substantially the famous calculation of Mr Jevons is amply confirmed. As the idea has got abroad that Mr Jevons has been refuted, it is to be hoped that due attention will be given to the report, and the popular error corrected'. (7) Two editorials in the Glasgow Daily Herald also defended Jevons, suggesting that 'there were a good many indications in the Commissioners' Report that they were anxious to make out a case against Professor Jevons'. While the Commissioners had relied on the estimates of Price Williams (who was 'a prophet of smooth things'), the Herald suggested that his 'fair-spoken prophecy of 360 years duration rests upon no reliable data'. (8) Jevons seized the opportunity with a (recently discovered) letter to the Herald. Responding to the editorials in his most extensive comments upon the Report, Jevons complained that the Commission had misinterpreted and/or distorted his arguments about the exhaustion of coal stocks and he criticised Price Williams's calculations, especially with regard to the projected increase in the population. (9) If Jevons was evidently on the outer as far as the Royal Commission was concerned, since there is no textual evidence of a written response by him to any questions the Commission distributed and no published reference to any evidence given by him in the three volumes of the published Report, the 1871 item in previous versions of the bibliography has been deleted.

Notes

(1) For these, with a list of obituaries of Jevons, see Inoue (1986); Inoue and White (2002).

(2) Inoue and White (2002) also includes a small number of entries (principally queries that Jevons raised for discussion at the Political Economy Club) that I do not think should be listed in a bibliography of Jevons's published writings and hence they are not included here.

(3) Report of the Commissioners Appointed to Inquire into the Several Matters Relating to Coal in the United Kingdom, H. M. Stationery Office, London, 1871, Vol. II, pp. 1-1a. (Three volumes were published).

(4) The circulated questions for Committee D are in Vol. II, pp. D103-6; for E, Vol. III, pp. 1-2.

(5) A copy of the letter to Jevons and the Circular are in my possession. The circulated questions for Committee A ('Circular AI ') are in the Report, Vol. II, pp. 203-6.

(6) Richard Price Williams (1827-1916) was a civil engineer who produced statistics to show that 'the rate of increase of coal produced was showing a progressive diminution' [Black 1973-81, 5, p. 143n; cf. Williams 1889].

Jevons also responded to the Report in a paper read to Section F of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1875, of which only an abstract now exists (item 155). In July 1881, Jevons wrote to his brother that 'The census reports in England, together with the coal statistics, are wonderfully bearing out my Coal Question, and my opponent, Price Williams, finds the ground entirely cut out from under him' [Black 1973-81, 5, p. 143].
