Notes

Scarce first edition in French, a translation of Jane Marcet's John Hopkins's Notions on Political Economy (London, 1833). Jane Marcet was one of the earliest authors of popular scientific books. Her most successful work was Conversations on Political Economy (1816) which ran to many editions and exerted considerable influence on the economic theory of the mid-19th century by helping to form the first impressions of young economists. The importance of John Hopkins's Notions lies in the fact that it depicts the life of the working class, a topic which had not previously been addressed in her work and would be developed later in Rich and Poor (1851).
