Études d’économie sociale (Théorie de la Répartition de la Richesse sociale).
This, the second, definitive edition differs from the first (1896) in containing the ‘Souvenirs du Congrès de Lausanne’. The congress on taxation in Lausanne in 1860, at which Walras read a paper, was a climacteric in his career. In the audience was Louis Ruchonnet, who later became chief of the department of education of the Canton de Vaud and, in 1870, founded a chair of political economy at the faculty of law of the University of Lausanne which he offered to Walras. Though students of law were hardly accessible to innovations in mathematical economics, Walras found in Lausanne the peace and security that enabled him to produce his most important work.

Wolowski, the whole translated by John J. Lalor.
