London: John Murray, 1830.
First edition, first printing. Six books in two volumes. In publisher's original paper-covered boards, with new cloth spines with title labels preserved. Very Good. Rubbing to board edges, previous owner bookplates to front paste downs, names to title page of Volume I. A treatise written in response to Thomas Malthus' works on population, primarily An Essay on the Principle of Population. Written during a time when population growth was viewed with fear in England, analogous to terrorism in modern times. Salder's work contradicts those notions, and proposes that population growth is not the great menace it was made out to be. Item #140938518
