London Macmillan and Co. 1890 - The Modern Age of British Economics MARSHALL, Alfred. Principles of Economics. Vol. I. [all published]. London: Macmillan and Co., 1890. Scarce first edition. Octavo (8 11/16 x 5 1/2 inches). xxviii, 754, [2, publisher’s catalogue] pp. Original dark green diaper-grain cloth with covers ruled in blind and spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Dark green coated endpapers. Previous owner's signature to the front free endpaper. Corners lightly bumped with some minor repairs to the top and bottom of the spine. Light foxing to half-title. Otherwise, a very good copy of a book that is almost always found rebound. Keynes described the publication of Marshall’s Principles as one of the salient events from which the "modern age of British economics" is to be dated (Economic Journal, 1940), and Schumpeter writes that "Marshall’s great work is the classical achievement of the period, that is, the work that embodies, more perfectly than any other, the classical situation that emerged around 1900.Behind the great achievement there is a still greater message. More than any other economist—with the exception, perhaps, of Pareto—Marshall pointed beyond himself.Naturally his work is out of date. But there is in it a living spring that prevents it from becoming stale" (pp. 834 and 840). Batson, p. 146; Einaudi 3736. HBS 64509. $7,500 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
