The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money

by Keynes, John Maynard

Condition: See description

MacMillan 1936, 1st Edition, Canadian Issue. (Cloth) xii, 403pp, [1]. Very good plus, no dust jacket. 8vo. In original forest green smooth-cloth boards; lettering in gold to spine. Boards with shelfwear; slight chipping at head and heel of spine; gold lettering rubbed; small dent at head of top cover towards centre. Textblock remarkably bright and clean. NOTE: Macmillan's initial printing history of this edition can be difficult to determine and, as such, confusion often arises as to the proper first edition attribution. This copy is a 1st Canadian edition, printed on British sheets, pre-dating the First American edition, and NOT a true 1st/1st as some presume. The cloth binding is more towards the olive hue and is smooth, and the lettering on the spine differs from the 1st British edition. The boards also lack any decorative ruling. Publisher's device opposite the title page, with both MacMillan and Co., Limited and the MacMillan Company of Canada, Limited listed. Title page identical to 1st British Edition; copyright page reads simply, "Copyright / Printed in Great Britain / by R. & R. Clark, Limited, Edinburgh". Erratum printed at foot p.403..

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.
