He is best known for his pessimistic but highly influential views on population growth. In 'An Essay on the Principle of Population' (1798) Malthus made the famous prediction that population would outrun food supply, leading to a decrease in food per person. "The book (Principle of Population) was at first published anonymously, but Malthus attached his name to the greatly altered edition of 1803". (Garrison-Morton, 1693). Item #33264
