First edition in English of the German economist Gustav Cohn's System der Finanzwissenschaft, originally published in Stuttgart in 1889. This translation was also the first book to bear Veblen's name, preceding his first original work, The Theory of the Leisure Class, by four years. After being awarded a fellowship in the Political Economy Department at the University of Chicago in 1892, Veblen's translation of Cohn's work helped launch the Economic Studies of the University of Chicago book series of which the present work forms the first volume. Cohn "was regarded as someone who chartered a middle way between the descriptivism of some historicists and the deductivism of English economics" (Rutherford, The Institutional Movement in American Economics, p. 40).
