Business Cycles.
Berkeley: University of California Press, 1913 - Quarto. Original publisher's buckram, red leather spine label, blue-green endpapers. Recent unobtrusive ownership inscription to the front pastedown. Slight wear to extremities, cloth a little soiled, but an excellent copy from the library of the US economist and Harvard educator Frank Taussig (1859–1940), with his ink stamp of ownership to the front free endpaper; and with a single sheet of notepaper with the letterhead of Edwin F. Gay (1867–1946), first dean of the Harvard Business School, loosely inserted. First edition of Mitchell's first book on the subject for which he remains best known. This mammoth study became the acknowledged precursor and guide for cyclical and other quantitative studies in economics for years to come. Mitchell, a leading authority on business cycles, regarded his task as the study of "money economy" and consistently sought a dynamic theory of social change. Though other contemporaries, such as Aftalion and Spiethoff achieved similar result in business cycle theories, Blaug calls his work "unique in its breadth and continuity". IESS 1913; see Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp. 168-170.
