Item Description: Macmillan & Co., London, 1936. First edition of the economist's masterpiece. This volume is generally regarded as the most influential social science treatise of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in an excellent dust jacket with some light wear and a small chip to the back of the crown of the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The General Theory ranks with Smith’s Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus’ Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. The London Review of Books has grouped The General Theory "among the glories of modern publishing, edited with exemplary authority and lack of fuss." Many innovations of The General Theory remain central to modern macroeconomics. It was placed on Time's 2001 top one-hundred non-fiction books written in English since 1923.

Item Description: London Macmillan, 1936. Octavo. xii, 403pp., original blue cloth gilt, dust-wrapper, small tape stain to front free endpaper, spine of dust-wrapper darkened, light wear. A fine example of the first edition of Keynes' masterwork, scarce in dust-jacket. Written in the aftermath of the great depression, the General Theory is regarded as one of the most influential social science treatise of the century; it quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society. This is the book "on which [Keynes'] fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest" (DNB). After the 1929 crash, Keynes analysed the classical school of economists, "and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. [.] A national budget, over and above its function of providing a national income, should be used as a major instrument in planning the national economy. The regulation of the trade-cycle [.] must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and not abandoned to laisser faire. [The General Theory] threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'" (PMM). About speculation especially, Keynes dismisses conventional wisdom, and the fundamentalist's dream, that the fund manager should base his investment decisions solely on the probably long-term yield of any investment: "He who attempts it must surely lead much more laborious days, and run greater risks than he who tries to guess better than the crowd, how the crowd will behave; and given equal intelligence, he may make more disastrous mistakes." Keynes was speaking from experience. During the Twenties and Thirties, he looked after several institutional funds -- highly leveraged, and highly speculative -- dealing in commodities, currencies, and equities. Like Livermore he was no stranger to loss, and during the 1929 crash his funds lost seventy-five per cent of their value. He managed to recoup, and, amazingly, six years later increased his fortune twenty-three times with a series of judicious investments. As Barton Biggs recently wrote: "there are many brilliant and bizarre characters in today's hedge fund world, but Keynes surpasses them all. Hedgehogs would have liked and appreciated him." PMM 423.

"Critical reaction to his great book was inconclusive. To young economists it was a 'Manifesto of Reason and Cheerfulness'. To most of their elders it was little more than an inflationist tract, 'the dying voice of the bourgeois crying in the wilderness for the profits it dare not fight for', as Joseph Schumpeter put it. Most of Keynes's Cambridge colleagues sat on the fence, shaken but sceptical". Skidelsky, Robert. John Maynard Keynes. Fighting For Britain. 1937-1946.

Item Description: 1930. First Edition. KEYNES, John Maynard. A Treatise on Money. London: Macmillan, 1930. Two volumes. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jackets. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7500.First edition of Keynes' important work on monetary theory, in rare original dust jackets."The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling the vagaries of the trade-cycle" (PMM 423). "In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opus.[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as 'the circus,' composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and others. Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus's discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a whole- a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time" (History of Economic Thought). As a result of the controversy over the Treatise on Money, and the subsequent discussions and debates that arose from it, Keynes produced his greatest work, The General Theory, which literally began a revolution in American economics. AMEX 254. Books near-fine, with a single tear to head of each spine and slight toning to spines. Rare dust jackets with expert restoration. A desirable copy. Bookseller Inventory # 101258

Item Description: London Macmillan and Co, 1936. 8vo., xii + 403 + (1)pp., in the original publisher's cloth lettered gilt. A fine, bright, copy without blemish, but without a dustwrapper. First edition: first issue. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. 'The composition of this book', Keynes declares, 'has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.' [Preface,> p. viii].

Signature of former owner on flyleaf, else Very Good, without dust jacket. 'Keynes's General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (published February 1936) is probably the most influential and controversial economics book of the twentieth century. In it, Keynes claimed to have undermined the foundations of orthodox economics and to have developed a radically new way of thinking about unemployment. Some (often young) economists took up Keynesan ideas with missionary zeal, whilst others (often older) were very hostile. There was also intense controversy over what Keynes was actually saying' (Thoemmes Web site). 'John Maynard Keynes is doubtlessly one the most important figures in the entire history of economics. He revolutionized economics with his classic book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (1936). This is generally regarded as probably the most influential social science treatise of the 20th Century, in that it quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society. No other single book, before or since, has had quite such an impact.'. Bookseller Inventory # 23799

Item Description: London, Macmillan, 1936., 1936. XII, 403 S., goldgeprägter O.-Leinwand-Band (Einband minimal berieben). Zweiter Druck, erschienen einen Monat nach der Erstausgabe. Arbeitsexemplar des Ökonomen Carl Föhl und daher für die Dogmengeschichte der sogenannten deutschen Vor-Keynesianer äußerst aufschlußreiches Dokument. Enthält zahlreiche Unterstreichungen, Anstreichungen und Marginalien in Bleistift, sowie auf den letzten weißen Seiten und im Innendeckel handschriftliche Notizen; u.a. eine ausführliche Liste mit "Übereinstimmungen". Föhl hatte nach seinem Maschinenbaustudium in Karlsruhe zunächst als Ingenieur bei der AEG in Berlin gearbeitet, war dann Berechnungsingenieur in Stockholm, von 1929 bis 1931 Geschäftsführer der Ruths G.m.b.H. in Berlin und von 1931 bis 1935 Chefingenieur der Ruths-International in New-York. 1930 hatte er an der TU in Berlin zum Dr.Ing. promoviert. 1935 übernahm Föhl die Geschäftsführung des 'Vereins zur Beförderung des Gewerbefleißes von 1821'. "Carl Föhl's Buch 'Geldschöpfung und Wirtschaftskreislauf' verdankt der 'General Theory' von Keynes überhaupt nichts, weil, wie der Autor im Vorwort feststellt, das Manuskript bereits im Dezember 1935 fertiggestellt war, so daß der Autor nurmehr gelegentliche Hinweise auf die 'General Theory' einfügen konnte. Um so überraschender sind mehrere Fälle der Parallelität zwischen seinen und den Keynesschen Lehrsätzen, obwohl für den anglo-amerikanischen Leser das volle Maß der Uebereinstimmung auf den ersten Blick nicht ersichtlich sein wird. Dies ist auf zwei Tatsachen zurückzuführen: Dr. Föhl verwandte einen anderen Begriffsapparat und gelangte zu seinen Schlußfolgerungen mit Hilfe von Methoden, die geeignet sind, jene Uebereinstimmung zu verschleiern; und außerdem schrieb er in einer anderen Umgebung, . Aber gerade deshalb wäre das Studium dieses Buches für die amerikanischen Oekonomen außerordentlich lehrreich: gerade infolge seiner nicht-Keynesianischen Methode offenbart es eine (objektive) Verwandschaft der Lehrmeinungen und rückt verschiedene Keynes'sche Probleme, besonders das der Gleichgewichts-Unterbeschäftigung, in ein neues Licht."

Item Description: MacMillan & Company, London, 1931. First edition of Keynes' first volume of collected essays. Octavo, original green cloth. Near fine in the original dust jacket which is chipped at the head and a few other closed tears. Uncommon in the original dust jacket. The essays in this volume show Keynes's attempts to influence the course of events by public persuasion over the period of 1919-40. In the light of subsequent history, 'Essays in Persuasion' is a remarkably prophetic volume covering a wide range of issues in political economy. In articles on the Versailles Treaty, Keynes foresaw all too clearly that excessive Allied demands for reparations and indemnities would lead to the economic collapse of Germany. In Keynes's essays on inflation and deflation, the reader can find ideas that were to become the foundations of his most renowned treatise, 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. With startling accuracy Keynes forecast the economic fluctuations that were to beset the economies of Europe and the United States and even proposed measures which, if heeded at the time, might have warded off an era of world-wide depression.

Item Description: Macmillan and Co, Limited, London, 1936. Book Condition: Fine. First edition. A just about Fine copy of the book, lacking the dust jacket. Spine a trifle toned, otherwise a clean, sharp copy. Lyman Spitzer, Jr.'s copy, signed and dated by him in 1936, while he was attending St. John's College, Cambridge. He would later become a core faculty member in Princeton's science department with a focus on theoretical astrophysics.Keynes magnum opus, published in 1936, revolutionized modern economics in its analysis of the market economy. Written after the Great Depression, Keynes sought to disprove a classical notion of economics by offering a theory of self-correction of the market economy after a total shock, such as he and his contemporaries had recently experienced. Today, the Keynesian theory of economics continues to its relevance in modern society and has influenced the teaching of modern economics in universities across the globe.". the ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else." Keynes, pp. 383-4. PMM 423. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 1575
