Principles of Economics.
Vol. I [all published].London and New York: Macmillan and Co. 1898 Stock Code: 146313
Fourth edition, first published in 1890, of an economic classic, the first full exposition of Marshall's theoretical position. Keynes described its publication as inaugurating "the modern age of British economics" (Economic Journal, 1940). Schumpeter writes that "Marshall's great work is the classical achievement of the period, that is, the work that embodies more perfectly than any other, the classical situation that emerged around 1900" (History of Economic Thought, p. 834). Marshall maintained for twenty years that this volume would be followed by a companion volume covering foreign trade, money, trade fluctuations, taxation, collectivism and more, but none was ever published. Marshall slightly altered the text for this fourth edition, and contributed a new preface.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, new endpapers over old black endpapers.
