A 1935 first edition, and a classic text of econometrics
First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, viii + 145pp, 3pp ads.
An important econometrics first edition. Allen and Bowley's study of family expenditure which aimed to see how far the expenditure of individual families could be described by rules and formulae, and divided expenditure into two, firstly costs common to all the family (rent, fuel, lighting etc) and secondly the individual's costs (clothing, food etc). The book makes heavy use of graphs and equations to come to its results.
A very good copy and quite rare in the original dustwrapper. The book is in good shape, with a few patches of light mottled fading to the cloth binding, and some tanning to the pastedowns and endpapers. The dustwrapper has some light edgewear but remains good.
