Notes

First edition, first printing of Veblen's treatise on peace, how it may be achieved and retained, as well as the possible effects of perpetual peace on society. Presentation copy inscribed by Veblen on the front free endpaper: "To Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt, Thorstein Veblen." Nordfeldt (1878-1955) was a Swedish-American artist who painted two portraits of Veblen, both now lost. Nordfeldt studied art in the U.S. and Europe. Between 1903 and 1907 he lived in Chicago, depicting Chicago landmarks and scenes, and it was most likely during this period that he also painted Veblen's likeness (Tilman, Thorstein Veblen, John Dewey, C. Wright Mills and the Generic Ends of Life, p.142).
