First edition, a very nice set. ‘Cet imporant ouvrage sur les recettes publiques contient une histoire financière et une théorie de l’impôt. Ganilh passe rapidement sur la partie historique et traite de la science du revenu public en 4 livres: législation et administration, dépenses publiques, contributions, comptabilité. En faveur de l’industrie et du bien-être, ainsi que pour une harmonie entre les consommations individuelles et sociales, mais contre le populationnisme agricole et l’impôt direct’ (INED).

Ganilh (1758–1836) ‘was a mercantilist with considerable modifications, due no doubt largely to his extensive acquaintance with the economic literature of his own time’ (Palgrave).

WU, Chi-Yuen.

An outline of international price theories… with an introduction by Professor Lionel Robbins.

First edition, number seven in a series of monographs by writers connected to the London School of Economics and Political Science. This work was adapted from the essay which Wu submitted for his PhD, which was awarded by the University of London in 1937. In An outline of international price theories, Wu, a Chinese born Austrian economist who studied at the London School of Economics, provides a general survey of the historical development of international price relationships. Wu does not attempt to provide a comprehensive study of all the literature concerning his subject, instead he selects and analyses a representative group of theories from which he extrapolates his more general conclusions.
