The Theory of Political Economy
London, Macmillan and Co., , 1879. Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged, with New Preface and Appendices. Octavo. Original brown boards, titles to spine gilt. Ownership name of F. R. Cowell to half title in pencil, edges of upper board discoloured from damp, internally a bright clean copy and shows well. Second edition. Jevons's foremost contribution to the history of economic thought. "Comparatively short and lucidly written, it sharply attacked the classical theory of value of the 'Ricardo–Mill school', and offered in its place the challenging view that 'value depends entirely upon utility', asserting boldly that 'Economy, if it is to be a science at all must be a mathematical science' ... from it Jevons gained international recognition as an economic theorist" (ODNB). While he made no fundamental changes for the second edition, Jevons revised the book thoroughly and discussed criticisms of it in a new preface.
