First edition, an abridgement, intended for students, of Marshall's Principles of Economics, with a chapter on Trade Unions added at the end of book six. "The necessary abridgement has been effected not by systematic compression so much as by the omission of many discussions on points of minor importance and of some difficult theoretical investigations" (Preface). Alfred Marshall (1842-1924) was a leading British economist who is credited with the field's development as an academic discipline.
Octavo. Original blue-green cloth, gilt lettered spine, speckled egdes.
Front hinge a little strained, spine rolled, otherwise an excellent copy.
