Value and Capital.
An inquiry into some fundamental principles of economic theory.Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1939 Stock Code: 134623
First edition, first impression, of the author's most significant book. Hicks was an eminent 20th-century economist known for presenting his ideas in book form rather than in monographs. He was an "economist's economist" (OED) and, though obscure to the public eye, he introduced many concepts that are still significant in economic theory. Value and Capital "taught a whole generation of economists to employ indifference curves and general equilibrium theory" (Blaug.)

Ownership signature to front free endpaper dated 1939. A near-fine copy in the discreetly restored jacket, with some Japanese tissue repairs to verso.
