Business Cycles.University of California Press, Berkeley , 1913 Stock Code: 110308
NotesFirst edition of Mitchell's first book on the subject for which he remains best known. This mammoth study became the acknowledged precursor and guide for cyclical and other quantitative studies in economics for years to come. Mitchell (1874-1948), a leading authority on business cycles, regarded his task as the study of "money economy" and consistently sought a dynamic theory of social change. Though other contemporaries, such as Aftalion and Spiethoff achieved similar results in business cycle theories, Blaug calls his work "unique in its breadth and continuity".
Quarto. Library binding of dark green cloth patterned to look like leather, gilt lettered spine.
Closed-tear at foot of title page, embossed Harvard Library stamp on title page recto, accession stamps on verso. A very good clean copy.
