This account of Boulton's finances covering the period 1759-1809 is based almost entirely on the Boulton manuscripts in the possession of the Birmingham Assay office. Some little use, too, has been made of the Boulton and Watt Collection in the possession of the Birmingham Central Library.

It is suggested that the main contribution of this Thesis concerns the financial aspects of the exploitation of Watt's invention of the steam engine.
