First edition. 8vo. 474 pp. Carey (1793-1879) succeeded his father, Mathew Carey, in the family publishing business, but earned wider recognition as an economist; in this work "he announced himself the foe of the free-trade system ... giving definitive statement to his opposition to the Ricardian theory of rent, maintaining that the order of occupation has been from poorer to better soils, and that the progress of associated labor and capital must always bring increasing rather than diminishing returns to effort" (DAB). Cf. Dorfman, vol. II, pp. 806-807. Original brown cloth, gilt spine title. Some repair at head of spine and along joints, else very good. (1453). Item #54509
