THE GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT INTEREST AND MONEY.

by KEYNES. JOHN MAYNARD

Condition: See description


Macmillan and Co. Limited. London. 1936. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. (8.7 x 5.7 inches). Publishers dark blue cloth with four blind ruled lines on each board. Spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Aside from a couple of very small indents into the cloth on the spine, but without breaking the cloth, this is a fine bright copy with the gilt still gleaming and the pages looking unread. Original first issue dustwrapper with the price still intact on the front inner flap and correct adverts to the rear panel. The wrapper has slightly darkened on the spine and has a closed tear to the front panel and spreading to the spine, but without loss, where it has rucked up, but overall is a very good bright and clean example. Overall a very near fine book in a very good dustwrapper. A superior copy of the first edition, first printing of this classic and influential work. --- Printing and the mind of man, No.423.

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was written by the English economist John Maynard Keynes. The book, generally considered to be his magnum opus, is largely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics.
