First edition, first printing, presentation copy to the British economist Lionel Robbins, inscribed by the author on the half-title: "Pour Lord Robbins, pour l'économiste, pour l'artiste, pour le philosophe, pour l'ami Jacques Rueff" (translated "For Lord Robbins, for the economist, for the artist, for the philosopher, for the friend").

A nice provenance: Robbins, along with Keynes, was the leading British economist during the inter-war period; at the London School of Economics, he "dominated the economics department for thirty years and built it up to its pre-eminent position in British economics" (ODNB). Rueff arranged the French translation of Robbins's 1934 work The Great Depression, and contributed the preface; they corresponded and met on various occasions, and Robbins esteemed Rueff's work, although he disagreed with Rueff's strident proposals during the 1960s for a return to the gold standard.
