KEYNES John Maynard (1930 )

£6750.00  [First Edition]


First edition. Two volumes. 8vo. [2], xvii, [1], 363, [1]; [2], viii, 424 pp. Original blue cloth, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, ruling continued to boards in blind, dust jackets (spotting to top edges of text block, both volumes otherwise internally clean and unmarked; the cloth remains bright and virtually unworn; the rare dust jackets remain notably clean, minor chipping to tips of spine panels, small circular private library labels to spine panels of both volumes professionally removed under our direction leaving small area of faint residue, Vol. 1 with some very faint scuffing to front panel and small area of loss to lower edge professional restored, otherwise an excellent set). London, MacMillan & Co., Limited.

The first of Keynes's two main contributions to economic theory and his most comprehensive work on monetary theory - complete with the rare dust jackets.

A Treatise on Money anticipated many of the ideas set forth in the General Theory, but differed from the latter in important aspects of its focus, paying closer attention to the theory of price levels rather than levels of output and employment.
