Principii di economia corporativa.
First edition. A mathematician by training, Amoroso (1886–1965) was inspired by Pareto to develop the relationship between pure economics and classical mechanics. ‘He also saw analogies between Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and economic phenomena’ (The New Palgrave).
‘During the Fascist period he was able, unlike some colleagues, to continue working in Italy. His Principii, written during this period, has discussions of money and equilibrium quite free from political implications and, in the third part, an economic theory of Fascism stated in analytical terms, which remains within the mainstream of economic science’ (Who’s Who in Economics).

[SAY.] HODGSON, Adam.
A Letter to M. Jean-Baptiste Say, on the comparative Expense of free and slave Labour.
First edition, presentation copy, inscribed ‘With the Author’s best respects’ on p. [iii]. Four years after the fourth edition of the Traité d’économie politique, Hodgson, an Anglican Evangelical writing on behalf of the Liverpool branch of the Society for Mitigating and Gradually Abolishing Slavery, upbraids Say for having denounced ‘the slave-system as unjustifiable’ while admitting ‘that in a pecuniary point of view it may be the most profitable’ (p. 1). Say (whose reply was published at the end of the second edition, also 1823) later agreed with Hodgson’s case for the uneconomical nature of slavery.
