Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution.
With an Introduction by Dr. Joseph Dorfman.London: Secker and Warburg, 1939 Stock Code: 133890
Later edition, UK imprint, using the 1939 American sheets published by the Viking Press with a printed overslip covering the original imprint. Originally published shortly after the outbreak of the first World War, Veblen's fourth book aimed to account for why and how Germany had so successfully dominated the modern industrial market, basing his arguments on business enterprise rather than "national genius".
Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, top edge green. With dust jacket.
Dust jacket price-clipped and worn at spine ends, final few leaves with lower corner a little dog eared, fore edge a little spotted; a very good copy.
