About this Item: Macmillan and Co, London, 1936. 403pp. 8vo. First edition. First edition. 403pp. 8vo. From the moment of publication to the current day, it's difficult to overstate the impact Keynes and his General Theory has had on the field of macroeconomics. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade cycle? [h]e subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Controversial and divisive, it was received with enthusiasm by some and dismissed as a recipe for inflation by others. Put briefly, his analysis demonstrated that "[e]conomic policy should [ultimately] provide for the management of demand as a means of controlling the level of output and seek to ensure the fullest possible use of available resources" (ODNB). Keynes's General Theory provides an invaluable critique and thus is a sort of companion volume of the likes of Adam Smith. Indeed, this and The Wealth of Nations should be considered the two pillars of any serious collection of books on economics. PMM 423 Original blue-green publisher's cloth, spine gilt The printed jacket is unclipped and in very good condition with the usual sunning to the spine. Seller Inventory # 101355

About this Item: Macmillan, London, 1936. FIRST EDITION. 220 x 148 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 1 p.l., xii, 403 pp. FIRST EDITION. Original blue-green cloth, original printed gray dust jacket (unclipped). PMM 423. Spine of dust jacket uniformly sunned and slight frayed at top (with tiny losses), top of jacket elsewhere with a hint of soil, otherwise very fine, the covers of the jacket clean and smooth, and THE VOLUME ITSELF IN PERFECT CONDITION. This is an especially appealing copy of Keynes' masterpiece, widely considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century. "General Theory" is the foundational document of macroeconomics, an argument for government intervention in the economy, espousing a managed capitalism that would not suffer from the highs and lows of the laissez-faire free market, as recently experienced in the Great Depression. According to PMM, "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in 'A Treatise on Money,' 1930, and later in his 'General Theory,' he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate." DNB describes Keynes (1883-1946) as a "philosopher, economist, editor, pamphleteer, company chairman, college bursar, patron of the arts and intimate friend of writers and artists, government spokesman and adviser. In each capacity he excelled." His ideological opponent Lionel Robbins called him "one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. The quick logic, the bird-like swoop of intuition, the vivid fancy, the wide vision, above all the incomparable sense of the fitness of words, all combine to make something several degrees beyond the limit of ordinary human achievement."

About this Item: London, Macmillan, 1936. 8vo. Original full cloth with the original printed dust-jacket. Dust-jacket, not price-clipped, with two small closed tears and one 5 cm long tear to upper folding of back flap, barely visible and with minute loss. A few tiny nicks to upper part of dust-jacket, with tiny loss. In all a splendid and very fresh dust-jacket with only very minor flaws. Previous owner's name to front free end-paper. A very fine and clean copy. XII,430,(1) pp. First edition of Keyne's landmark work; of one of the most important and influential books in the history of economics and social sciences in general. In terms of importance Keynes' book is often compared to Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' and Marx's 'Das Kapital'. "Keynes had been a man to reckon with since before the first World War but his great influence began with the publication of [the present work]. Never in the history of modern economics has any book in the first dozen years of its publication received anywhere near the attention that has been given to this one. Never has the use of term and ideas by economists and other persons in discussions of the state of the economy been so altered by one book as in this case, nor has statecraft ever been so modified by analysis and recommendations that were contained within, and that have grown out of, a single work." (Hoover, Twentieth Century Economic Thought)The work forms the foundation of of Keynesian economics, the most influential economic system of the twentieth-century. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. . (In his General Theory of Employment), he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. By-passing what he termed the 'underworlds' of Marx, Gesell and Major Douglas, he propounded a hardly less unorthodox programme for national and international official monetary policies. . Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund 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'". (Printing and the Mind of Man, 423).PMM 423Moggridge A10. Seller Inventory # 53786

Signature of E. B. Hodgson on ffe. with remnants of old tape marks where a neat cut Keynes signature was held in place & is now tipped there. Printing And The Mind Of Man 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. Keynes's masterwork, written in the aftermath of the great depression of 1929 is generally considered the most influential global social science treatise of the century.

About this Item: London, Macmillan, 1936., 1936. 8vo. XII, 403 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. First edition, first impression of what is generally considered the author's magnum opus, the book widely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. 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). "In 1936, although Roosevelt's 'New Deal' had utilized Keynesian prescriptions, 'The General Theory' ('on which', says D.N.B., 'his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest') 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 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). - Very light discolouring of upper margin (ca 3 cm) of front side, a fine copy.

About this Item: 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.". Seller Inventory # 101258

About this Item: 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.

About this Item: 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].

About this Item: 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." (Schumpeter, Geschichte der ökonomischen Analyse, S. 1403 und 1427). Seller Inventory # 6488

About this Item: 1936. First edition, first impression. 8vo., original dark blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, boards ruled in blind. London, Macmillan and Co., Limited. First edition of Keynes' greatest work and surely the most influential text of twentieth century economics. Prompted by the world wide-slump following 1929, Keynes set upon an ?explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found seriously inadequate and inaccurate. . [Keynes'] programme for national and international official monetary policies [was based on the premise thatthe] national budget, over and above its function of providing a national income, should be used as amajor instrument in planning the national economy. The regulation of the trade-cycle - that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment - must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and abandoned tolaisser faire?(PMM, p. 254). The grip of Keynesian economics took hold almost immediately, informing aspects of Roosevelt's 'New Deal', the formation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, as well as many of the policies of the post-war British Labour government. Neatinkownershipinscriptionfront free endpaper, very slight crack to hinge between pp. 320-321, overall a very good, clean and crisp copy without the dust jacket.

Spine rolled and a little faded with small indent near the foot, ends bumped, overall a very good copy. First edition, first impression. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). His conclusion, namely that "the regulation of the trade-cycle – that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment – must be the responsibility of governments", permanently altered the terms of economic debate and considerations of the role of government in managing the economy (or not).

About this Item: 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.
