KEYNES, John Maynard.
The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.
London: Macmillan and Co, Limited, 1936. London: Macmillan and Co, Limited,, 1936. One of the defining books of the century Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, double rules to spine gilt and to covers in blind. Two ownership signatures in ink to front free endpaper: "[?] 1936", "A. J. Grayson 1957". Spine faded, ends and corners superficially bumped and rubbed, a few faint marks to covers, occasional spotting to contents and book block edges but generally clean and without annotations. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, of perhaps the most significant economics book of the 20th century. Written in the aftermath of the great depression, Keynes's masterpiece "subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Moggridge A10.1; Printing and the Mind of Man 423.
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
