Bookplate of the Royal Statistical Society to front cover and front free endpaper verso, with their acquisition label to front pastedown marking the book's receipt on 24 October 1879, presented by Messrs Macmillan & Co., blind embossed library stamp to upper margin of pp. v, 40. Extremities lightly rubbed, cloth a little cockled in places, joints and hinges professionally restored; title and upper margin slightly dust-soiled; a very good copy of a scarce title. First edition of Marshall's first book, written jointly with his wife Mary Paley Marshall, very rare in commerce. "Ostensibly an elementary primer, this book contained the first general statement of Marshall's emerging theories, and a considerable sophistication lay beneath its deceptively simple surface. Together with the powerful Pure Theory chapters published by Henry Sidgwick, a few copies of which circulated outside Cambridge, the Economics of Industry marked Marshall as a rising star in the economic firmament" (The New Palgrave 3, p. 351.)
