Notions de John Hopkins sur l'économie politique... Contes traduits de l'anglais par Caroline Cherbuliez.Paris, Ab. Cherbuliez et Cie, 1834 Stock Code: 100974
NotesScarce 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).
Octavo (220 x 138 mm). Uncut, sewn as issued in printed yellow paper wrappers.
Printed armorial bookplate to half-title. Spine ends a little frayed; some light, even spotting; an excellent copy.
