About this Item

First Edition in English of Leerboek der Staatshuishoudkunde (1st Dutch ed., 1884-90). xii, 604 pp; xxiii, 644 pp. Original cloth. A Very Good+ set. 'Pierson's work is the first important contribution to the modern discussion of the economic aspects of Socialism' (F. A. Hayek). . . . Carl Menger stated that Pierson's work was important and that because of him, German speaking economists were interested in Dutch economic literature. In 1909, when Pierson was severely ill, Alfred Marshall wrote him a letter in which he said he thought that the world would class him with Adam Smith, the thinker, the patriot and the cosmopolitan, and with Turgot the statesman-economist' (Johannes Overbeek, 'Nicolaas G. Pierson and Socialism', Austrian Economics Newsletter, Vol. 8, No. 2; mises[dot]org/journals/aen/aen8_2_1[dot]pdf). F. Y. Edgeworth reviewed the 1896 first part of the Second Dutch edition (Economic Journal, 1896, p. 77): 'It has been attempted here merely to indicate the principal additions which have been made to the second edition of this standard work. A fuller consideration might be more appropriate when the English reader can be referred to chapter and verse in a translation; which we earnestly hope will soon be forthcoming.' In two other papers in the same journal, 'Pierson on scarcity of gold' (1895, pp. 351-5) and 'A defence of index-numbers' (1896, pp. 356-68), Edgeworth refers 'approvingly to articles by N. G. Pierson in De Gids', while he 'ventured to differ' with Pierson's 'Further Considerations on Index-Numbers' (Economic Journal). Bookseller Inventory # 12321
