Ricardo (David) An Essay on The Influence of a low Price of Corn on the Profits of Stock... with Remarks on Mr. Malthus' Two Last Publications, second edition, half-title, slightly browned, later endpapers, later morocco-backed boards, 8vo, 1815.

⁂ "Following his involvement in the bullion controversy, Ricardo's next significant publication was his Essay on the influence of a low price of corn on the profits of stock; shewing the inexpediency of restrictions on importation (1815). As its title suggests, the Essay was written in opposition to (controversial) proposals for the imposition of new, higher duties on the importation of corn." - Oxford DNB.
