English citations of accountancy

Unknown senseEdit

  • 1854, John Bowring, The decimal system in numbers, coins, and accounts : especially with reference to the decimalisation of the currency and accountancy of the United Kingdom.[1], volume 1, page 113:
    Of our current silver coins the most obstructive to a decimal accountancy are the half-crown, the fourpence, and the threepence, pieces which, however they may facilitate payments, are connected with complications and loss of time even in our existing mode of keeping accounts.
