Théorie des richesses sociales.
Suivie d'une bibliographie de l'économie politique.Paris: A. Sautelet et Cie; Alexandre Mesnier, 1829 Stock Code: 141057
NotesFirst 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.
2 volumes, octavo. Original printed drab wrappers, uncut and mostly unopened.
Joint expertly and discreetly reinforced, minor sunning to spines, slight chipping to corners, contents foxed as usual; still, a very good copy.
Coquelin & Guillaumin II, p. 621; Estreicher IV, p. 249; Goldsmiths' 25774; Kress C.2362.
