Third edition, following the extensively revised “Great Quarto” of 1803, and the first in two octavo volumes, the format which was to remain the standard in Malthus’s lifetime for the most widely-discussed economic tract of its era. This third edition has important alterations and additions, particularly the appendix, in which Malthus replied to some of his many critics.

2 volumes, tall octavo. Original green paper backed blue boards, printed paper labels to spines. Reference library bookplates to front pastedowns. Boards rubbed, wear to extremities, professional repairs to joints and ends of spines, occasional light spotting to contents. A very good set.

Bibliography: Kress B.5067.
