In the original wrappers

Rare first edition of this manual on mathematics applied to economics by the influential Italian probabilist statistician and actuary Bruno de Finetti (1906-1985). De Finetti is chiefly noted for both his "operational subjective" conception of probability (developed in the 1920s independently of Frank P. Ramsey) and for his eponymous theorem on exchangeable sequences of random variables. He was an honorary fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, as well as a member of the International Statistical Institute and a fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. In 1974 he was elected a corresponding member, and then a full member, of the Accademia dei Lincei. The de Finetti Award, presented annually by the European Association for Decision Making, is named after him.
