LIST, Friedrich.
National System of Political Economy.
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co.,, 1856. Octavo (228 x 140 mm). Publisher's burgundy cloth, blindstamp rule border to covers, spine ruled and lettered gilt, brown coated endpapers. Spine ends lightly rubbed, pale damp mark to upper outer corner, diminishing to nothing by the middle of the book, occasional foxing and the odd pencil annotation to margins in German; a very good copy. First English translation, originally published in German in 1841. His first economic work, the Outlines of American political economy, was written in English and published in 1827 when he was in America, and forms List's first attempt at a systematic formulation of his views. The development of those views was revealed in 1841 with the publication of Das nationale System der politischen Ökonomie. Friedrich List (1789-1846) was a significant political economist who developed the theory of national economics, disagreeing with Adam Smith that the actions of individuals necessarily correlated to the economic strength of their society. His theories are the basis for much of modern economics and were the inspiration for the European Economic Community. Cossa, p. 297. See Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 129.
