“John Maynard Keynes was one of the great intellectual innovators of the first half of our century, and certainly its greatest political economist”

KEYNES, JOHN MAYNARD. A Treatise of Money

London: Macmillan, 1930

Two volumes. Original dark blue cloth. Minor discoloration to one board. A very good set.

FIRST EDITION of “Keynes’s most ambitious and weighty work” (New Palgrave). The ensuing criticism of A Treatise On Money spurred Keynes to create his major theoretical work, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, in which he more fully developed concepts he first expressed in A Treatise. “Nevertheless, [A Treatise on Money] was the outstanding performance in its field and day” (Schumpeter).
