NotesFirst edition, first impression, in exceptionally nice condition, of perhaps the most significant economics book of the 20th century.
Written in the aftermath of the great depression, Keynes's masterpiece "subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Its publication quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, rules continuing to boards in blind. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.
Single small stain to rear cover, else a near-fine copy, clean and tight, in like jacket, price-clipped, very small chips at extremities with scattered faint rub marks, yet still remarkably fresh.
