MANGOLDT, Hans Karl Emil von.
Grundriss der Volkswirthschaftslehre.
Ein Leitfaden für Vorlesungen an Hochschulen und für das Privatstudium.
First edition of the major work of the greatest of the German classical economists of the nineteenth century. The Grundriss has been described as “a comprehensive but highly compressed work, which stands out not only for its path-breaking discussion of price formation but also for its liberal use of geometric diagrams, including the Marshallian cross of demand and supply” (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 148). Mangoldt “ranks among those pioneers in Germany, like von Thünen, von Buquoy, von Hermann, Gossen and Launhardt, who applied formal analysis to explain economic phenomena” (The New Palgrave). Schumpeter names him “among the century’s most significant figures in our field”.
Octavo (218 149 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, spine decorated gilt, red morocco label, edges stained red. With several figures in the text. Ownership stamp of the business school of Fürth to the title-page with their bookplate to the front pastedown. Spine neatly restored at head, shelf label removed from foot of spine. Occasional very light spotting. An excellent copy.
