Taussig's copy

First edition, Frank William Taussig's copy, of Higgs's account of the Physiocratic School, originally delivered as a series of lectures at the London School of Economics in 1896. In the same year Taussig had examined the influence of the Physiocrats on English economic advances in his work, Wages and Capital, also published by Macmillan.

"In 1894 Higgs had written the entry on the Economistes for Palgrave, but that piece ran to only two short paragraphs" (Palgrave II, p. 653): this book, in addition to his edition of Richard Cantillon's Essai (1931), remains his most extended work on the subject.
