With Some of their Applications to Social Philosophy.
An attractive American edition, from the fifth London edition, originally published in 1848. “From the moment of publication, Mill’s Principles was hailed as a classic, far more congenial to the public than earlier economic textbooks, and far more readable than the Logic” (ODNB).
