WICKSTEED, Philip Henry.
The Alphabet of Economic Science. Part I . Elements of the theory of value or worth. [All published.]
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).
