1st thus. 44 pp + xxiv + 528 pp Reprinted from the 1885 Cassell & Co. 1st Edition with a new introduction by Saville, with original title page reprinted as well. A fascinating book, a collection of papers delivered at the landmark 1885 conference, wherein the discussion revolved around the competing ideas of laissez-faire and social responsibility. Set against the backdrop of a wealthy and properous Victorian England that was starting to think that Malthus was wrong and that the survival of the fittest wasn't necessarily a moral test. Very scarce reprint of an even scarcer economic classic. Redf cloth with gilt shows moderate wear, little dusting at spine tips, some marks on feps, interior clean and nice.; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
