First edition, first printing, of “the first carefully orchestrated and sustained attempt to understand economics from the point of view of the entrepreneur. Like his teacher Thorstein Veblen, Davenport was considered something of a maverick and iconoclast” (Hébert & Link, A History of Entrepreneurship, p. 60).

Octavo. Original red cloth, green endpapers, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, frame to covers in blind. 8 pages of publisher’s advertisements tor ear. Ownership inscription to front pastedown. Spine sunned and very gently rolled with slight fraying to extremities. A very good copy.
