  1. Essai sur le principe de population.

    Essai sur le principe de population.

    Traduit De L’Anglois.
    First French language edition, translated by Pierre Prévost. First published in English in 1798, it was perhaps the most influential work of its era on population, arguing that the growth of a population would always outrun its ability to feed itself. The first edition was so successful that Malthus soon elaborated on it under his real name, culminating in the sixth edition of 1826, which was a scholarly expansion of the first. Learn More
