Original offprint of Hayek's "brief sketch" of The London School of Economics, written to mark its fiftieth anniversary in October, 1945. "It had been hoped that this event would be marked by the publication of a full history of the School... but although some material had already been collected for this end, it has proved impossible during the war to go on with the plan, and the full history must wait for a more propitious moment." (p. 1). With the ownership inscription of the Chicago sociologist, Edward Shils, to the front wrapper; he read sociology at the LSE from 1946 to 1950.
Octavo, pp. 31. Original printed wrappers, front wrapper lettered black.
Covers with neat repairs using Japanese tissue. Front cover sunned, small ink splash to the rear cover; a very good copy.
