London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, and Green, 1865. People's Edition. Octavo. Bound in contemporary full red morocco, with blind ruling to boards, raised bands and gilt titles to spine; all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With bookplate. Binding is rubbed, corners bumped, joints worn, one gouge to front board. Internally clean, with spotting to prelims and end matter. Bookplate, "H.M Spooner, Magd. Coll.", unclear if it refers to Cambridge or Oxford; gift inscription to Spooner from "his ever affectionate friend E.C. Baldwin". To his contemporaries, this was Mill's major work; Principles of Political Economy was one of the most widely read of all books on economics in the nineteenth century. As Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations had during an earlier period, Mill's text dominated economics teaching; in the case of Oxford University it was the standard text until 1919. Item #43303
