Law, Legislation and Liberty.
A new statement of the liberal principles of justice and political economy.Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1973-79 Stock Code: 144233
The culmination of his philosophical careerFirst 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 dust jackets.
Endpapers and facing leaves of vol. I foxed, neat ownership signature dated 2005 to front free endpaper of vol. III; jackets slightly toned with light sunning to spine panels, very minor spotting to verso and flaps. Notwithstanding a near-fine set.
