révision de la théorie de l'équilibre économique général. Preface de André Lichnerowicz.Paris: Dunod, 1975 Stock Code: 141523
First edition, first printing, presentation copy to the British economist Lionel Robbins, with the signed presentation note on Perroux's card reading: "Pour Lord L. Robbins en hommage d'admiration et j'amite ègaliment fidels Francois Perroux 18.4.76". An excellent economics provenance: Robbins, along with Keynes, was the leading British economist during the inter-war period; at the London School of Economics, he "dominated the economics department for thirty years and built it up to its pre-eminent position in British economics" (ODNB). In his autobiography, Robbins praised Perroux as among those who resurrected the international community of economists following the war: "I think of Francois Perroux whose tempestuous energy has done so much to transform and re-create the shape and international affiliation of economic studies in France" (Robbins, Autobiography of an Economist, p. 219).
Octavo. Original boards printed in white and red.
