Philosophy and Political Economy in Some of their Historical Relations.London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co.; Macmillan & Co., New York, 1893 Stock Code: 127159
First edition of this study of how economic analysis has been closely influenced by the course of political philosophy. "Its discussion of utilitarianism... can be still read with profit and his command of things 'German' - from Kant, Fichte and Hegel down to Richard Wagner - is impressive" (The New Palgrave). A Scottish civil servant, James Bonar's (1852-1941) other writings include works on Malthus and Ricardo, as well as the catalogue of Adam Smith's Library.
Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, green endpapers.
Spine ends lightly bumped, a few marks to cloth, else a very good copy.
