Les économistes, les socialistes et le christianisme. [Presentation Copy].
Paris, Jacques Lecoffre, 1849.. Royal octavo. Pp. 177. In the original publisher's printed wrappers, rebacked; untrimmed copy, fore-edge bit frayed. In a very good condition (small persistent dampmark in gutter margin). Overall fine, wide-margined interior. ~ First edition. Scarce presentation copy, signed. With an elaborate hand-written dedication by the author on half-title. Charles Périn (1815-1905) was a professor of public law and political economy at the Catholic University of Louvain. A "utopian socialist", he belonged to the "French Liberal School", the 19th Century French economists which followed the tradition, both in politics and economics, set by the theorist Jean-Baptiste Say. Périn criticizes Bastiat's ideas in his "Les Doctrines économiques depuis un siècle" (also offered by Librarium). Unlike Bastiat, Périn adopted the labour theory of value. Since the return to land was not a return to labour, he maintained that rents sanction an injustice. Following Périn, many social Catholics raised the issue of social justice. Périn's criticisms of Bastiat brought to light the logical link between the labour theory of value and the demands of social justice. (See Arnaud Pellissier Tanon, "The Labor Theory of Value and Social Justice: Social Catholic Criticisms of Bastiat's Doctrine.") Overall a good copy with fine provenance.
