[Economics] Malthus, Thomas Robert (1766-1834)
Definitions in Political Economy.

London: John Murray, 1827.

First edition, octavo, with half-title bound before title page; bound in publisher's brown paper-covered boards with printed paper spine label, colophon leaf pasted inside back board, 8 x 4 1/2 in.

Malthus's work is described as "a valiant attempt to resolve differences of opinion in political economy by codifying its terminology and establishing rules for the definition of terms. It could be regarded as one of the earliest works on the methodology of economics." (DNB).
