Elementary Principles of Economics.
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1912 - Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, buff endpapers. Spine darkened, edges rubbed, tips worn, front free endpaper slightly abraded from erasure of inscription, marginal toning, joints starting. First "published" edition of Fisher's textbook of economics, preceded by two "trial" editions, one in 1910 under the title of Introduction to Economic Science, the other in 1911 under the same title as this one. "The experimental editions, of which there were two, were made possible by special arrangement with the publishers. This gave opportunity for thorough trial for two years in classrooms at Yale . The present - the third and final - edition is the first to be offered to the general public" (Preface). "Fisher was the consummate pedagogical expositor, always clear as crystal. He hardly ever wrote for fellow experts. His mission was to educate and persuade the world. He took the trouble to lead the uninitiated through difficult material in easy stages. Whenever he was teaching or tutoring students, he wrote handbooks or texts for their benefit - in mathematics and science when he was still a student himself, in the principles of economics when he was the professor responsible for the introductory course. Fisher's economics text was published in 1910 and 1911. Its graceful exposition of sophisticated theoretical material will impress a modern connoisseur" (Tobin in The New Palgrave 2, p. 370).
