Single volume. Hardback. Set ISBN: 1855069032. Single volume only. 'Harriet Martineau (1802--76) is famous chiefly as a poularizer of economics. In [her works] she attempted to embody in stories and fables the leading doctrines of Malthus and Ricardo.' --L. M. Fraser, "Encyclopedia of Social Sciences 'Again and again do we cordially recommend these volumes to universal perusal. They are graphic and vivid pictures of England as it is -- these are works to be read as a whole, from the first number to the last.' --"Literary Gazette This series of pamphlets comprises thirty-four largely fictionalized pieces separately published between 1832 and 1834. The first twenty-five form "Illustrations of Political Economy, the great success of which brought Martineau financial success and literary acclaim. At a time when the political economy of Malthus, Ricardo and James Mill was beginning to take effect, there was a great desire to have the science popularized, and this Martineau did brilliantly. Each volume ends with a summary of the principles illustrated and taken together they form an invaluable course in political economics. This work was followed very quickly by two companion works, "Poor Laws and Paupers Illustrated in five parts and "Illustrations of Taxation in four parts. Subsequently Martineau continued to write prolifically and court controversy with her outspoken rejection of religion and her active campaigning for women's rights. --complete collection of thirty-four first editions published in thirteen volumes --popular but now mostly scarce works highly influential in their day --rarely found in complete sets even in major libraries --multi-disciplinary with relevance to economics, politics, philosophy, literature, Irish studies, slavery, women's studies and nineteenth century studies --new historical introduction by Caroline Franklin Complete in itself but part of a larger set.
