Notes

First 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.
