About this Item: New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1911, 1911. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board in gilt, publisher's device to front board in blind. Extremities a little rubbed, top corners of boards a little bumped, light ink stain to bottom corner of boards and text block, faint dampstaining to fore edge of front free endpaper and first 8 leaves. A very good, bright copy. First trade edition, preceded only by the privately distributed edition in the same year. "F. W. Taylor, an engineer in the Bethlehem Steel Works in Philadelphia, was the originator of what he called 'scientific management', now known as 'time and motion study'. His system was based on what he estimated to be a fair day's work and the best means of ensuring such a standard of production. He was interested in any factor that hindered or helped in attaining this end, and besides studying factory conditions and methods in great detail he was responsible for fundamental changes in machinery and machine tools. The main lines of approach to increased efficiency were standardising processes and machines, time and motion study, and payment by results, all of which have been welcomed in the USSR, where 'Stakhanovism' is virtually 'Taylorism' renamed, and in Germany, where the Principles was translated and achieved a wide circulation (31,000 copies sold by 1922). The adoption of his methods there contributed notably to the speedy recovery of German production after the First World War. His methods were anathema to trade unionists almost everywhere else" (PMM). Downs, Books That Changed America, 17; Norman 2059; See Printing and the Mind of Man 403. Seller Inventory # 114770

About this Item: New York, Harper & Brothers, 1911. 8vo. In the original embossed dark green full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Capitals and corners with minor wear and a 2 cm long tear on p. 71, not affecting the text. Otherwise a very nice and well preserved copy. 77 pp. First printing of Taylor's seminal work on 'scientific management' or 'time and motion study', which became the very first business bestseller and sparked an entire revolution in business management, today known as 'Taylorism'. -Taylor is today regarded, due to the ideas presented in the present work, as one of the most original and influential management thinkers of all time."The main lines of approach to increased efficiency were standardizing processes and machines, time and motion study. [.] The adoption of his methods contributed notably to the speedy recovery of German production after the First World War". (DSB)."Frederick W. Taylor was the first man in recorded history who deemed work deserving of systematic observation and study. On Taylor's 'scientific management' rests, above all, the tremendous surge of affluence in the last seventy-five years which has lifted the working masses in the developed countries well above any level recorded before, even for the well-to-do. Taylor, though the Isaac Newton (or perhaps the Archimedes) of the science of work, laid only first foundations, however. Not much has been added to them since - even though he has been dead all of sixty years." (Drucker, Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices, 1974, p. 181)"Taylor's greatest work, "The Principles of Scientific Management", was the very first business bestseller. Its influence spread to unlikely places. It was translated early into French and inspired Henri Fayol. In Russia, Lenin at one stage exhorted Soviet workers to "try out every scientific and progressive suggestion of the Taylor system". Subsequent failure to achieve Taylor-like production targets led many Soviet workers to the gulag." (The Economist)Today scientific management, sometimes known as Taylorism, is often seen as a system that has no room for the nuances of human nature in its urge to find ever greater manual efficiency. But Taylor himself is universally acknowledged to have been one of the most original and influential management thinkers of all time. His biographer, Robert Kanigel, wrote: "After Ford and Taylor got through with them, most jobs needed less of everything-less brains, less muscle, less independence." (Ibid.).PMM 403.

About this Item: New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1911, 1911. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front board with single fillet border in blind. Ownership signature of R. L. Rowley dated 27 March 1911 to front pastedown, his armorial bookplate to front free endpaper; subsequently from the library of esteemed collector Victor Niederhoffer. A near-fine copy, spine slanted and light rubbing to extremities, some offset from bookplate residue to front pastedown, contents evenly toned. First edition, the scarce privately printed issue, of the first and most influential book on business and industrial management. "This special edition [was] printed in February 1911 for confidential circulation among the members of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers with the compliments of the author" (title page statement). The first trade edition followed the same year. In the Society's journal for 1911 (Vol. 83 So. 1) a "R. L. Rowley" is listed as having been elected a new member on 1 June 1911, and is likely the first or at least one of the earliest owners of this copy. "F. W. Taylor, an engineer in the Bethlehem Steel Works in Philadelphia, was the originator of what he called 'scientific management', now known as 'time and motion study'. His system was based on what he estimated to be a fair day's work and the best means of ensuring such a standard of production.
