London: MacMillan and Co., 1890. Hardcover. xvi, 231 p.; 17 cm. Green cloth with black spine and cover titles. Black endpapers. Bookplate of the Belles Lettres Society of Dickinson College on front fixed endpaper indicating that this was given to the college in 1891 by G. E. Mills, chair of the Book Committee. Embossed Dickinson College Library stamp on title page. Mary Paley Marshall (1850-1944) was part of the first class (of 5 women) at Cambridge's Newnham College in 1871. She taught economics at Newnham and was asked to write a book based on her lectures. Her husband, Alfred Marshall, also contributed to The Economics of Industry before publication. It was popular and reprinted many times. When his larger work The Principles of Economy first appeared in 1890, he opposed any further printings of The Economics of Industry, indicating that this was presumably the final printing. Extremely scarce. In Very Good Condition: cover is rubbed; call number written in white and black at tail of spine; back free endpaper scraped; a few minor pencil marks; otherwise, clean and solid. Very Good. Item #007636
