Théorie de la Richesse sociale or Résumé des Principes fondamentaux de l'Economie politique.Paris: Guillaumin et Cie, Libraires, 1849 Stock Code: 147806
First edition. The Théorie de la Richesse is important for the influence it had on Auguste's son Léon; it is from this work that Leon derived his conceptual arrangement of capitaux as "all 'goods' that serve more often than once and, in a narrower sense, as durable goods that are themselves produced (capitaux proprement dits). Their services he called revenus, no matter whether they are consumed by the owner (e.g. as leisure in the case of 'personal' capital: this leisure is still travail) or used productively" (Schumpeter p. 999).
Duodecimo (184 x 113 mm). Recent brown cloth, red sheep label, fore and bottom edges uncut.
Complete with contents and advertisement leaves at rear. Label a little rubbed, binding holding firm, contents somewhat toned and foxes as usual, faint running dampstain at head of gutter from p. 47 to end, minor ink marks to pp. 48, 49, and 68, slight paper adhesion to p. 97. A very good copy.
