First edition of Wicksteed’s first work. Fundamentally a basic textbook of new economics, it did much to popularise the adjective “marginal” and the term “marginal analysis” and received the approbation of both Edgeworth and Pareto. Batson calls it “a very valuable little work which aims at providing a thorough mathematical explanation of the ‘fundamental propositions of the theory of value'” (p. 60).

Octavo (170 114 mm). Original publisher’s cloth, lettered in black. With 10 folding plates and numerous figures in the text. Jesuit library stamp to half title and title. Spine ends a tiny bit faded, but a crisp clean copy in excellent condition.
