First edition, marked ‘for private circulation’, of a paper read before the Statistical Society on 21 February 1848.
The barrister J. T. Danson (1817–1898), a man of great versatility and varied experience, wrote on many economic questions, among them on English colonial policy, strongly setting forth the need of controlling colonists in their dealings with natives and with unappropriated land.

Mathematical investigations in the theory of value and prices.
Presentation copy, inscribed ‘To Mr. J.W.L. [sic] Rowe with the compliments of Irving Fisher, March, 1927’, of the second edition in book form, a photo-engraved reprint of Fisher’s doctoral thesis, first published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences, in 1892.
