There are numerous historical works on immigration to the US which refer to
the various laws at the different times of mass immigration. Some of them
also touch on costs. See your local librarian.

One of those is the 1962 work, The Promised City, by Moses Rischin which
states the cost of direct passage in steerage >from Bremen or Hamburg at $34
with a discount of $9 if you agreed to travel by way of Liverpool.
