First edition of one of the author’s major works. Schäffle ‘nimmt als Kritiker des Sozialismus eine besondere Stellung ein. Kein anderer Deutscher hat bisher einen so besonnenen wissenschaftlichen Versuch gemacht, in den Ideen des Sozialismus Wahres und Irriges voneinander zu scheiden, wie er in seinen 1870 veröffentlichten Vorträgen über Kapitalismus und Socialismus’ (Schumacher & Wagner). (Our translation: ‘holds a special place as a critic of socialism. Up to that point, no other German had made such a considered scientific attempt to separate the true from the false in the ideas of socialism, as in his lectures on capitalism and socialism, published in 1870’).

Schäffle (1831–1903) was Professor of Economics at the University of Tübingen before obtaining a professorship at the University of Vienna (1868) and an appointment as Austrian Minister of Trade (1871). ‘His influence, both as an opponent of laissez-faire liberalism and a reconciler of German philosophy and the inductive method of economic investigation, was considerable’ (Who’s Who in Economics).

Geschichte des Oesterreich-Russischen und Türkischen Krieges, in den Jahren von 1787. bis 1792. Nebst Aktenstücken und Urkunden.

First and only edition, extremely rare, of this account of the Austro-Turkish War of 1788-1791, and of the concurrent Russo-Turkish war of 1787-92. It includes the full texts of the Treaty of Sistova of 4 August 1791 and of a separate convention attached to it, in both French and German. While the gains for Austria were meagre, the end of the Russo-Turkish war, sanctioned by the Treaty of Jassy of 9 January 1792, effectively left Russia in control of the Black Sea.
