Description:

First U.S. editions of Harcourt books of this era which had previously been published overseas were supposed to state "First American Edition" or "First printing" to copyright page, whereas this volume bears only the lonely and naked word "Copyright" to center of copyright page, while far below at the bottom of copyright page we find the lines "Printed in Great Britain by / R. & R. Clark, Limited, Edinburgh." And the same printer's credit appears here as final line of type on final page of this volume -- even though this book clearly states "Harcourt, Brace" to both title page and (in gilt) to bottom of spine. What this means, almost certainly, is that this first American edition was bound from British sheets. (In the true British first, of which we offer a copy separately, the word "Copyright" also stands alone.) Very-good book in a good dust jacket. Not price clipped; original $2.00 price showing. G.D.H. Cole and Wall Street Journal blurbs to front flap. This is the tenth and latest of the author's titles listed opposite half-title page; all other titles show sales figures, while there are no sales figures for this title. "1936" to title page. No later dates or printings mentioned. Erratum to page 403. Two tiny brown spots to fore-edge. John Maynard Keynes was the most celebrated economist of the Twentieth Century, his theories widely (if selectively) embraced by the ruling political and banking elites because they appear to encourage endless borrow-and-spend inflationary credit bubbles, which in turn allow the politicos to (in the doctrine attributed to Roosevelt henchman and Soviet agent Harry Hopkins, "tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect." Rear jacket flap of this book advertises Ludwig Von Mises' "Theory of Money and Credit" and Friedrich Hayek's "Monetary Theory and the Trade Cycle," interestingly enough. xii pp. of preliminary matter followed by 403 pp. including index. Reduced from $805. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Macmillan & Co., Ltd., London, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Dated 1936 to title page. There are no dates or printings listed to copyright page, which displays only the lonely word "Copyright" to center, while far below at the bottom of copyright page we find the lines "Printed in Great Britain by / R. & R. Clark, Limited, Edinburgh." And the same printer's credit appears here as final line of type on final page of this volume. Book will close its own text block and would thus usually grade "very good," but the blank FFE has been torn out of this copy and discarded, and a single "Withdrawn" stamp appears to top corner of next front blank, indicating a possible library history. But there are NO other library stampings or attachments; we'll thus grade the volume "good" in an original blue-on-gray dust jacket priced 5/- net" to bottom of front flap (NOT to spine). Jacket shows numerous small closed tears along top edge, and one of almost an inch to front panel (jacket had been allowed to "ride up" a bit, over time); call the jacket "very good" or "very-good-minus." Jacket spine moderately browned/darkened (not as noticeable in the hand as it appears in our scan); NO dampstain found anywhere. This is the tenth and latest of the author's titles listed opposite half-title page; all other titles show sales figures, while there are no sales figures listed for this title. Erratum to page 403. This is the true British first printing. John Maynard Keynes was the most celebrated economist of the Twentieth Century, his theories widely (if selectively) embraced by the ruling political and banking elites because they appear to encourage endless borrow-and-spend inflationary credit bubbles, which in turn allow the politicos to (in the doctrine attributed to Roosevelt henchman and Soviet agent Harry Hopkins) "tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect." xii pp. of preliminary matter followed by 403 pp. including index.
