Law, Legislation and Liberty.
A new statement of the liberal principles of justice and political economy.Chicago : 1973-9 Stock Code: 135360
NotesFirst US editions, first printings, of each volume of Hayek's last major work of social philosophy, published over a seven-year period. In many ways the culmination of his philosophical career, Law, Legislation and Liberty was Hayek's most extensive philosophical analysis of the structure of society, the nature of justice, and the underlying principles of economics. The work joins The Road to Serfdom and The Constitution of Liberty in the triumvirate of Hayek's three philosophical masterworks. The UK and US editions, both printed in Britain, were published the same years, apparently simultaneously.
3 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, spines lettered in gilt on blue grounds. With the dust jackets.
Vol. II an ex-library copy (Rochester Institute of Technology library) and showing the signs, with their stamp to each edge, the shadow of an old library label to the sunned spine panel, the front pastedown with extensive residue from their plate, their shelfmark and pocket to front free endpaper, tape residue to rear pastedown. The other volumes are in better shape, with some light toning and sunning, some soiling to rear panel of vol. III. Overall a good set.
