Buchbeschreibung Boston: Hilliard, Gray, and Co., 1834, 1834. Octavo (250 x 150 mm). Original pebble grain cloth-backed drab boards, neatly rebacked, new printed spine label, fore and lower edges uncut, preserved in a custom made green morocco backed cloth box. Corners worn, one or two splash marks to boards, inner hinges strengthened. Occasional light spotting and one short marginal tear; a very good copy of a scarce book. Printed exlibris of Amos Lawrence of Boston and the library of Maryville College, Tennessee, to front pastedown. First edition, scarce and often overlooked, of "one of the highlights of classical economic theory" (K.H. Hennings in The New Palgrave). A native of Scotland, Rae (1796-1872) emigrated to Canada, and thence to America, where this, his only publication, was written. Originally intended as an appendix to a larger work on the Natural History and Statistics of Canada, Rae "succeeded in creating a theory of capital to which Böhm-Bawerk and others were indebted; in his lifetime some small recognition from J. S. Mill was almost the only notice he obtained" (Who's Who in Economics), although Fisher, Wicksell and Åkerman were all subsequently familiar with his work, Fisher dedicating one of his main works to Rae. His work "also influenced Schumpeter's (1911) concept of economic development, and Veblen's (1899) notion of conspicuous consumption." (Hennings, ibid.).
