Octavo, original blue-green cloth, original dust jacket. $14,000.First edition of Keynes' last major work, considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century, rarely found in the original dust jacket.Keynes' General Theory ranks with Smith's Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus' Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM 423).

Attractive dust jacket with small chip to foot of gently toned dust jacket spine, affecting publisher's name, shallow wear to corners. A very desirable copy in the scarce original dust jacket.
