Andrew Odlyzko: Prices and related data for 19th century British financial markets

This page presents some data about 19th century British financial markets. At the moment it consists exclusively of information about British government bonds (gilts) that were the basis for the paper Economically irrational pricing of 19th century British government funds[preprint, PDF] and its supplement[preprint, PDF]. Later, additional tables about share markets, especially railway shares, will be added. The main project page with all papers about related topics is at [recent papers on technology and financial manias]
