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and would thus usually grade "very good," but the blank FFE has been torn out of this copy and discarded, and a single "Withdrawn" stamp appears to top corner of next front blank, indicating a possible library history.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. Here reduced from $5,000. Seller Inventory # 005051

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.

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 that the] 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 - 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 to laisser faire? (PMM). 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. PMM, 423; Moggridge A10. Seller Inventory # 231997

About this Item: London: Macmillan, 1936., 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First Edition. Printing and the Mind of Man 423. xii, 403 pp. Original cloth. 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.'. Seller Inventory # 23799

About this Item: Macmillan & Co, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. John Maynard Keynes (1936) 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money', UK first edition, first printing, published by Macmillan & Co. First state with the erratum mentioned on page 403. Condition of the book: very good. Previous owner's name written neatly on the ffep. Light shelf wear. Some underlining and annotations in pencil throughout the book. Those can easily be erased. The dust jacket is a facsimile specimen which presents the book well and protects the book from fading and soiling on the shelf. The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money is a landmark book and Keynes' magnum opus of macro-economics that introduced terms like 'multiplier effect' leading to the 'Keynsian Revolution'. The school's thought was dominant until the collapse of Bretton Woods, but with the weaknesses of Milton Friedman's 'Monetarism' exposed following the global financial crisis Keynes' line of thought witnesses a revival. Keynes does not seem to have signed his own books, and we have never seen a signed copy surface at professional auctions. First and Fine. Seller Inventory # ABE-1559290226832
