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 and ruled in gilt, rules continuing to boards in blind. With the dust jacket. Slight fading to spine, contents free from marks, occasional light foxing. A near-fine copy in the scarce jacket, spine uniformly browned, not price-clipped, well-preserved. First edition, first impression, in the scarce jacket, 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). Its publication quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society. Moggridge A10.1; Printing and the Mind of Man 423.
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
