West (Sir Edward) Price of Corn and Wages of Labour with observations upon Dr. Smith's, Mr. Ricardo's, and Mr. Malthus's Doctrines, first edition, folding lithographed chart opposite title (slightly creased along folds), half-title, 2pp. of advertisements at end, slightly browned, endpapers a little spotted, original boards, corners bumped and worn, printed paper label on spine, label slightly chipped, edges uncut, [Goldsmiths' 24816; Kress C.1813], 8vo, London, John Hatchard, 1826.

⁂ "West's The Price of Corn and Wages of Labour (1826), though written in India, was remarkably up to date in its deployment of recent accounts of distress in the British manufacturing districts. He used these to provide an alternative to Smithian, Malthusian, and Ricardian price and wage theory. West's was a demand theory, based in turn on the consumption of the manufacturing classes." - Oxford DNB.
