Notes

First edition of Skarbek's most substantial contribution to economic theory, which influenced Karl Marx's theory of labour. A reworking of the author's Gospodarstwo narodowe... first published in Warsaw (1820-21), it is divided into two parts, the first discussing production, exchange, revenue and consumption; the second a general examination of the wealth of nations, in which the author refers to the works of Say, Smith and Storch. The bibliography of economic literature at the end of vol. II, covering Xenophon to Voltaire, is particularly valuable. The book is uncommon in the original wrappers, especially in such good condition.
