The Economy of Cities

New York: Random House, 1969.

First edition, first printing. Signed by Jane Jacobs on the half-title page and inscribed "This is my best book (I think)." Bound in publisher's green cloth stamped in blue and lettered in gilt. Near Fine with light foxing to textblock edge, in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light wear at the extremities, very light creases to the front panel and an old price sticker to the front flap. After upending the world of urban planning with The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Jacobs examined the economics of the city. Prefiguring the modern Shop Local movement, she argues that urban economic growth thrives when a city begins to produce goods it formally imported. Item #140943603
