Baltimore: Christian & Fleet, Printers, 1885.
Softcover. Very good. 15-page pamphlet in original printed wrappers. Partial split at spine, chip to one corner of front wrapper, otherwise very good. The author was Secretary of the State Tax Commission of Maryland and was also a member of the Baltimore City Tax Commission. Here he argues that the City of Baltimore lacks a proper system for assessment of property, which has resulted in significant inequities in the tax burden on property owners. He recommends establishment of a permanent department with well-trained employees to perform assesments on an annual basis. Four copies located in OCLC.
