Abstract

Leslie Hannah argues, among other things, that the series on par value of UK‐listed equities that I presented in an article published in the Economic History Review in 2015 is deeply flawed. Although I would quibble with some of Hannah's points, his main conclusion is correct: many of the series in ‘Bloody foreigners!’ are, in fact, flawed and require substantial revision. In this note, I explain the source of the errors and the steps I have taken to correct them in the preparation of subsequent work.
