Essays on some unsettled questions of political economy.
First edition of a series of five theoretical essays on economic problems which Mill had composed around 1830, only one of which had been published. Gathering these earlier essays gave Mill the idea of preparing a major synoptic work that would expand and bring up to date the classic treatises of Smith and Ricardo, and it proved to be the genesis of his great treatise, Principles of Political Economy, published early in 1848.
Octavo. Original grey paper boards, neatly rebacked to style, inner hinges reinforced. A very good copy.
