Progress and Poverty: An Inquiry into the Cause of Industrial Depressions, and of Increase of Want with Increase of Wealth. The Remedy.
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1880 - Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt, frame and design to upper board in black, to lower board in blind. Two ownership inscriptions in pencil and ink on front free endpaper and the half-title. Spine a touch darkened, some minor rubbing to extremities, occasional spotting and a few pencil marks to the advertisement leaves. A very good copy. First trade edition, originally published in a privately printed edition of 200 copies in 1879. "The most influential of American works on economics, this book gave its author an international reputation as prophet and reformer. He proposed to abolish poverty and secure fair distribution of the rewards of labor by appropriating all economic rent by taxation, and abolishing all taxation except upon land values. Today the slogan of the single tax still unites the followers of Henry George" (Grolier, One hundred influential American books printed before 1900, no. 81).
